Staying cool and hydrated is difficult during this North Texas heat wave, but imagine trying to keep yourself safe if you’re homeless. To help those less fortunate Salvation Army volunteers have been spending afternoons handing out hundreds of cups of cold water.
This year there has only been one heat-related death in Tarrant County, but there have been nine in Dallas. With forecasters predicting record-breaking heat this week, health workers are concerned the numbers will increase.
Today will be Day 14 in a string of triple-digit days. Yesterday’s thirteen-in-a-row tied the tenth longest such streak ever in Texas.
