Heat wave to sweep through United States
UNDATED (WHDH) -- Boston isn’t the only city feeling the heat, it’s hot just about everywhere in the U.S.
Philadelphia has been under heat advisories all week and in Kansas City the Salvation Army saved the day with free fans.
In El Paso, Texas, volunteers were going door-to-door to hand out fans to grateful mothers with babies.
Out West, the advice is universal for those who can’t help but be outside in it, hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.
A weatherman in Los Angeles claimed it would be “hottest on the weekend at 105…and it’s gonna take it’s time cooling off, even by Tuesday and Wednesday.”
Even lifeguards are struggling to keep cool. They froze water bottles and stuck them behind them while they sit to cool their backs.
In Phoenix, Arizona, it could reach 118 on Sunday and it’s forecasted to be 117 in Las Vegas, where emergency officials said plenty to do makes staying inside easy.
“Great shopping, wonderful dining, all in air conditioned comfort. There’s no reason to be hot this weekend when you can find a lot of other things to do to stay cool” said Carolyn Levering, a Las Vegas Emergency Manager.
Triple digit heat is predicted throughout the west this weekend, including the states along the Canadian border.
