“The heat brought summertime-size crowds to Los Angeles County beaches. They were about as packed as a typical Fourth of July weekend, with attendance probably above 1 million,” LATimes reported quoting lifeguards.

The heat is also affecting Northern California, with new record for the day of 84 degrees set in San Francisco, Sacramento, Stockton and Modesto, said the report.

On Sunday, temperatures across the region are forecast to remain up to 25 degrees (F) above normal for the date.

L.A. Marathon

More than 26,000 people from all 50 states and 55 different countries were expected to participate in Sunday’s 30th annual L.A. Marathon, amid record-breaking temperatures.

The heatwave, which has scorched the region for three consecutive days,  prompted the organizers to reschedule the starting time for the race to 06:55, 30 minutes earlier than planned.
