Building Heat = More Bodies
The high temperature tied a record at 102 today.And while the Chicago area hasn't seen three straight days in the 100s since 1947, that could change this week.
The temperature hit 102 degrees at the official recording station at O'Hare International Airport at 1:42 p.m., according to the National Weather Service, although the official temperature at 2 p.m. was back to 101. And WGN-TV meteorologist Tom Skilling is forecasting a high around 101 on Thursday and 100 on Friday.
Anyone remember 1995? When the temps didn't drop for a week straight and several hundred bodies started turning up at the morgue.
Now imagine that with our manpower shortages.
