Across the country, emergency room visits were way up, according to public health officials, mainly because of people suffering from heat exhaustion and heat stroke. The weather is suspected of contributing to a number of deaths nationwide. At least six more fatalities were reported just yesterday.
Warnings about excessive heat stretched from Kansas to Maine and the Carolinas. In Connecticut, a dozen Girl Scouts were treated for heat-related problems at a scout camp. Philadelphia's public schools canceled summer classes, while Allentown to the north waived fees at its public pools.
Special dangers can come at night, experts warn, if the temperatures don't cool enough to provide relief. It never got below 107.1°F overnight on June 27th, when Oman recorded the world’s highest ever minimum temperature.
While the current heat wave has recorded 12 all-time daily highs so far this month, it also has registered 98 all-time overnight highs, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reported at a briefing Thursday.
No! Rush Limbaugh insists that it's NOT HOT!
|Heat? What heat?|
Rush informed his listeners that the heat index in particular is a totally made-up, non-valid, non-scientific measurement invented solely to promote the lie of man-made global warming- just another "librul guvment conspiracy". (As was the thermometer I suppose.) Right. (Wonder how many Dittoheads are buying THIS one?)
Honestly I'd gladly and gratefully relocate to Canada or at least Vermont (if I could think only of the right Lotto numbers), but alas, I'm stuck here in Texas, burning up.
How actual HELL would be any different I suppose is only a matter of degree.....
