Relief in sight for millions blanketed by heat wave


235 million people are braving temperatures above 90 degrees, and 40 million are battling the heat in the triple digits as the week-long heat wave continues. Some baseball fans still braved the games though attendance capacity barely hit 70% capacity at Philadelphia’s Citizens Bank park. Meanwhile, two more deaths were reported due to the heat wave, bringing the total to 5. Fortunately, a cold wave is moving into the northeast overnight, expected to bring lower temperatures and some long-awaited relief.
