Heat wave scorches Northeast, New York, Boston as temperatures skyrocket to dangerous levels
Brutal heat was pressing down on much of the United States this weekend, with more than 100 million Americans sweltering under heat advisories, warnings or watches, and heat indexes in the Northeast soaring into the triple digits.
The dangerous and intense summer heat continues on Monday.
From the southern Plains into the East, it will feel extremely oppressive, especially in the major metro areas of Washington D.C. to New York City and Boston.
Officials up and down the Interstate 95 corridor urged residents to hydrate and watch for signs of heat-related illness as people flocked to pools and cooling centers for relief in cities stretching from Boston to D.C.
