Heat wave, drought bake U.S.

All across the country, a massive summer heat wave is leaving plenty of Americans sweating out triple-digit temperatures and high humidity.

 

Drought and heat are making trouble for farmers and drying up water reserves. In Kemp, Texas, officials made an emergency decision to shut off the town's water supply.

 

Dangerous conditions await people who work and play outdoors. The heat proved deadly for at least three young athletes and a coach, sparking discussion about playing games in this weather.
