More than 100 million in US under heat-related warnings as temperatures rise [Video]

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:


  • The National Weather Service placed more than 100 million people in the U.S. under heat advisories on Thursday.
  • The announcement comes as a dangerous heat wave continues to affect several states.
  • The NWS said temperatures will surpass 110 degrees in the southwest and only fall into the 80s at night.

More than 100 million people were placed under heat advisories or excessive heat warnings on Thursday as temperatures across the country rise, reaching triple digits. 

The National Weather Service’s (NWS) Weather Prediction Center announced that 60 daily high-temperature records have been tied or surpassed. Unfortunately, new records will likely be set in the comng weeks.

Nearly 60 million people in at least 16 states will experience temperatures as high as 100 degrees or hotter, according to The Washington Post. About six other states could experience the upper 90s. 

The NWS website’s map displays warnings and heat advisories for states like New Jersey, South Carolina, and Texas. Mississippi, Arizona, and Nevada were placed in excessive heat warnings.

On Thursday, the NWS said that dangerous heat will continue to affect the southwestern, south-central and eastern regions of the country. For much of the U.S., above-normal temperatures will remain through the end of the week. 

In the southwest, temperatures will hit over 110 degrees and will only drop into the 80s at night. The heat indexes in the southern plains to the Mississippi and Tennessee valleys will surpass 100 degrees for the next couple of days.

The most recent heat wave comes after above-average heat and dryness were felt in June in much of the U.S. Last month was the 15th warmest June in 128 years and tied for the 12th driest on record. 

The NWS issued warnings for children, the elderly, and people with chronic illnesses as they are the most vulnerable to heat exposure.

In May, the Journal of the American Medical Association published a study that extreme heat events are increasing as a result of climate change and are associated with higher death rates among adults in the U.S.

    What years were the other 14 hottest years and the other 11 driest years . without that information I can not see any facts that indicate global warming. This is for the last 128 years.

    There is a severe drought every decade if you or the liberal weather service would possibly have the honesty to admit it.
    We are in that ten year drought, and it gets hot during the summer in a drought! Duuuh! This summer is completely normal in Nebrska. There’s been a few 110 degree days and numerous nights that stayed above 90 degrees. The midwest gets this drought at the front of every decade. In 2001 and 2002 we had 5 inches of moisture and 7 inches or moisture respectively for that drought. In 2012 and 2013 we had 7 inches and 6 inches, respectively. This is 2022 for all you people who don’t keep track of the weather; the drought is right on schedule! It gets hot! You morons that buy this BS that records are being broken, and we’re all gonna die from globalfreekingwarming can consider yourselves duped by liberals and democrat politicians making a fortune on gogreenglobalwarming@totalbullshit,com

    for people like “sick and turd”……… every summer it gets hot, and every winter it gets cold (yes they do have freezes in Florida). The tornados, fires, melting runways, hurricains, floods are cyclicle and normal. However, people who aren’t old enough to know of historical weather patterns, they think the sky is falling everytime the weather changes. In 1955 when Disneyland first opened, all the streets were melting. Yes it gets hot in the summer. According to Al Gore and his book, “inconvenmient truth”, the ice caps should have all melted away in 2012, and we should have ALL been under water 2 years ago (2020). But that never happened and liar Gore is in hiding, so now they trot out little greta girls to preach crap to us. If ya just follow the money, you’d know who the liars are. There is no “global warming” because if there was, the imbeciles on the left wouldn’t have had to change it to “climate change” to try and keep convincing everyone of their crap.
