At least 30 deaths were blamed on the heat, including nine in Maryland and 10 in Chicago, mostly among the elderly. Three elderly people found dead in their houses in Ohio had heart disease, but died of high temperatures in homes lacking power because of recent outages, officials said. Heat was also cited as a factor in three deaths in Wisconsin, two in Tennessee and three in Pennsylvania.
Now that the heatwaves are over in the midwest, Florida will be in one. Ours is supposed to last a couple of weeks. Fortunately we rarely get to 100F (37.77C) but it will be high humidity, also. The water in the gulf will really heat up now, which will fuel any hurricane activity.
