Heat Wave Scorches South and Eastern Seaboard

USA
Residents from the southwest to the eastern seaboard are experiencing sizzling heat.
The heat wave has shattered records in more than 20 cities -- tying or breaking all-time highs. Atlanta tied its all-time record high of 108 degrees Fahrenheit, which hadn't been recorded since 1873.
