The Nation

Sweltering heat, which has claimed at least one life, turned the nation into a sauna east of the Rockies, prompting Chicago to open “cooling centers” and forcing Ohio townships to order water conservation. In Wisconsin, scattered showers and thunderstorms brought scant relief from a week of summer heat that left at least one man hospitalized. Farther east, Washington’s National Airport reported a record-tying temperature of 100 degrees for the date, while Harrisburg, Pa., at 97, and Jacksonville, Fla., at 99, also tied records for the date.
