US heatwave turns deadly

The persistent heatwave from the Southern Plains to the Northeast of the United States has resulted in multiple heat-related deaths as well as disrupted traveling and outdoor events.

Over 85 million Americans are under excessive heat warnings or heat advisories, according to a bulletin by the U.S. National Weather Service on Sunday.

A 73-year-old man from Allentown, Pennsylvania on Thursday succumbed to excessive heat exposure, complicated by underlying medical conditions, according to local officials.

Meanwhile, a 66-year-old woman who had underlying health conditions died of heat Thursday in Dallas county, Texas, said the Dallas County Health and Human Services.

It's estimated that hot temperatures in July have led to dozens of deaths including at least 17 fatalities from Maricopa county, Arizona.

The temperature also caused postponements or adjustments of sports events and delays of trains.
