Extreme Temperature Diary- Friday June 9th, 2023/Main Topic: The Atlantic is at Record Warm Levels Affecting Puerto Rico

That large island has had its fair share of climate crisis problems, most notably being Hurricane Maria back in 2018. During 2023 their problem is high heat. The surrounding Atlantic is at record warmth due to climate change, so it’s no wonder that day after day stations in Puerto Rico are setting records:
