Power outages have left millions without air conditioning with intense heat predicted to continue this week. Three million are still without power Sunday morning with many looking at a week before getting it turned back on.
With the power outage so wide-spread, even some of the traditional municipal cooling centers are powerless having authorities scrambling to get a list out to their towns and cities as to where the residents can go to cool off.
These powerful storms, considered hurricane strength weather, devastated an area from Indiana to New Jersey and south to Virginia, according to Fox News. With a dozen reported dead so far, people continue to dig through the rubble of what looks like the aftermath of a war-torn area.
The National Guard's deployed and delivering fuel for generators and water to the stricken areas. Travel is at a stand-still in many areas as trees, telephone poles and downed power lines block the roadways. The same goes for train service in these areas.
Keep in mind this intense heat is dangerous for the elderly and those with health conditions. Check in with your elderly neighbors and relatives as this deadly heat blankets the storm stricken area for the coming week.
The storms were responsible for knocking out some major online websites for the entire nation. Netflix, Pinterest and Instagram went down as their servers are in the area that lost power. Netflix and Pinterest are back up and running today.
