DALLAS - The temperature setting is stuck on broil across a
swath of the Midwest and South, with Dallas and Oklahoma City
suffering through 100-degree heat for 10 or more days in a row.
Temperatures are soaring from Louisiana to Illinois, where
authorities say a 51-year-old man found dead Sunday suffered heat
stroke in a mobile home without a working air conditioner.
National Weather Service spokesman Chris Vaccaro says even areas
with temperatures in the 90s are feeling as hot as 115 degrees with
the humidity.
Hutchison, Kan., hit a scorching 112 on Sunday and Vaccaro says
Oklahoma City has hit 100 degrees or higher every day since June
Dallas also is on track to record its 10th day of 100-degree
