(NBC News) A record heat-wave across the west and southwest has turned deadly.

Paramedics found an elderly man dead inside his home in Las Vegas which had no air conditioning.

In Southern California half-marathoners couldn't out run the conditions with several being treated for heat exhaustion.

First responders across the region warn the intense conditions are very dangerous.

"People are having signs and symptoms of weakness, fatigue, dizziness. They're fairly sweaty, they're pale," said one first responder.

Science tells us that heat rises, but it grounded 18 u-s air flights in Phoenix.

Commuter jets aren't rated to fly in temperatures higher than 118-degrees the record high in Phoenix was 119.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
