The high temperatures in Tulsa will be well over a hundred for at least the next two days. On Sunday there's a chance we may get down into the 90's. We've been taking pictures of people and animals trying to stay cool, or of people working in the heat.
Most news photographers around the country are taking similar pictures. In Minnesota, a record heat of 98 degrees has been recorded. That tops the previous record of 96 degrees back in 1911. It's hot in India, Macedonia and California too. In Chicago, it may be hot, but at least it rained recently. In India though, the monsoons have flooded villages and killed dozens of people.
Here are a few images of people trying to keep cool or keep dry from locations around the world.
