Record-Breaking Heat Causing Transit Delays, Health Scares

New, 4 comments

"The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco." The current heatwave has pushed temperatures past 100 degrees in several cities in the bay area, breaking records for most. After a heat advisory geared mostly towards the elderly, infirm, and very young was put out yesterday, cooling centers were set up in the most heated areas. For instance, the Vallejo Fire Department opened a cooling center at a senior center. The heat is also affecting public transit. "I am just learning that we are suddenly experiencing a plethora of problems because of heat," BART's Linton John said. Thankfully (for some folks this'll be bad news), the heatwave will be short lived. Temperatures are suppose to drop ten degrees by tomorrow (Wednesday) and then 20 degrees in most areas by the weekend.
