UNRELENTING SWELTERING HEAT WAVE SITS ACROSS HALF OF USA – 30 DEAD
In sad and distressing news, Brett Zongker and Ron Todt report: ”Americans dipped into the water, went to the movies and rode the subway just to be in air conditioning Saturday for relief from unrelenting heat that has killed 30 people across half the country.
The heat sent temperatures soaring over 100 degrees in several cities, including a record 105 in Washington, St. Louis (106), and Indianapolis (104), buckled highways and derailed a Washington-area train even as another round of summer storms threatened.
The heat sent temperatures soaring in more than 20 states to 105 in Louisville, Ky., 101 in Philadelphia, and 95 in New York; besides Washington, a record of 104 was set in Sioux Falls, S.D., and Baltimore set a record at 102.”

[Solar panelled rooves are needed across the US and sustainable energy resources are needed too. Less fracking should be a priority of government policy, as water supplies are now needed in the USA more so than ever].
Much love in this patience growing exercise – through a trial of endurance. May the medics be strong at this time. Grace be upon America. Peace!.
