Southwest Braces for More Sizzling Temperatures

June 30, 2013

LAS VEGAS (AP) - High temperatures are bringing discomfort to much of the Southwest as many parts of the region are coming off record-breaking heat days and bracing for more sizzling temperatures.

Triple-digit heat was on tap Sunday for the valleys and desert regions of Southern California, while metropolitan Phoenix was expected to see a slight drop in temperatures after experiencing record-breaking heat on Saturday.

Six half-marathon runners in Southern California were hospitalized Sunday for heat-related illnesses. A day earlier, paramedics responding to a Nevada home without air conditioning found an elderly man dead.

Phoenix Fire Department spokesman Larry Nunez says Phoenix hasn't seen any deaths that were classified as heat-related, but emergency workers have gotten 98 heat-related calls within metro Phoenix since Friday morning.
