A heatwave has affected much of the United States, beginning in late June to current time (July 2013). Over 20 states have had heat advisories, all across the U.S. The heat index has reached over 100 degrees Fahrenheit in some cities, while the Northeastern U.S. has suffered a massive amount of hot days, causing one road on Long Island, New York to buckle. An elderly man has died in Kentucky, officials say due to the heat.[1]

On July 19, Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Philadelphia, the heat index hit 106 degrees. Every state except Alaska had temperatures reaching at least 90 on the same day. According to the Associated Press, the heat wave hovered in place for so long was that it initially was moving backwards, or westward, and stalled when it hit an approaching Canadian cold front.[2]
