100-degree heat grips South, Midwest; heat advisories for East Coast

DALLAS (AP) - Much of the nation, from the southern Plains to parts of the East Coast, will be seeing heat advisories again today as temperatures reach near 100 degrees. A National Weather Service spokesman says, "We're in the midst of a heat wave that's not over yet."
After reaching 112 degrees Sunday, Hutchinson, Kansas saw a reading of 103 yesterday afternoon. In Oklahoma City, it's been 100 degrees or higher every day since June 29. That's 13 days in a row. The record in the city is 22 consecutive days of triple-digit readings.
One man in Oklahoma who works on construction at water treatment plants says he's using survival skills he learned while working in Kuwait. David Vaughan says they had a saying: "Walk slow and drink a lot of water."
