If you’re wondering why people are being rescued in the picture to my right, it is because the United Kingdom has had a big June. It’s been the wettest June in fifty years! The United Kingdom recorded about 145.3mm of rain this June – in England, 142.6mm, Wales, 205.0mm, Scotland, 129.4mm and Northern Ireland, 169.2mm. New figures are compared with the 1979-2000 rainfall average, which was 72.6mm.
Many places, such as Kansas City, Mo., reached 99 but due to the humidity, it felt much higher – around 103. The National Weather Service has issued excessive heat warnings for Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Missouri. The heat will only increase over much of the East over the next couple days. So watch out America! Have a happy holiday week! Stay safe.
Here are a couple of tips to beat the heat and stay safe.
- Stay out of the heat for an excessive amount of time.
- Carry a bottle of water.
- Make sure you have an air conditioned place to stay incase you feel too hot.
