Record Heatwave Kills Dozens in U.S.

Posted by feww on July 8, 2012

Deadly heat persists in eastern U.S.

At least 46 people have died amid extreme heat that has paralyzed more than two dozen states from the Midwest to the East Coast.

Heat-related fatalities occurred in Virgina (at least 12 deaths reported), Maryland (11), Chicago (10), Wisconsin (4), Ohio (3), Pennsylvania (3) Tennessee (2), and Indiana (1), where an infant died after being left in a vehicle in triple-digit temperatures outside her home in Greenfield, about 25 miles east of Indianapolis.

Hundreds of thousands of people in West Virginia, Virginia, Ohio, New Jersey, Maryland and Indiana are still without power 9 days after deadly storms swept through the region causing widespread destruction and ‘catastrophic damage’ to power grids.

    Are you aware (agree that you may not care) that the blog conveys a sense of paranoia…is there any way you would consider adopting a tone that is is less so? I value the events, tracking of data element however an inability to explore your hypothesis and rationale for the Days to Collapse..coupled with this tone raises skepticism in the reader.
