Northeast heat wave turns deadly as Excessive Heat Warnings continue through the weekend

Published

on

More than 85 million Americans are under heat alerts to start the weekend as record high temperatures have become deadly in Pennsylvania and altered the 2022 New York City Triathlon. 

An Excessive Heat Warning is in place through Sunday night in parts of New Jersey, Delaware and Pennsylvania, including Philadelphia, which is forecast to reach a Heat Index of 107 degrees on Saturday.

National Weather Service forecasters say the extreme heat and humidity will significantly increase the potential for heat-related illnesses, including heat stroke.

In New York City, the Medical Examiner’s office said Saturday that one person succumbed to heat exposure as the Big Apple sweltered under its fifth straight day in the 90s.

The unidentified victim also suffered from heart disease and pulmonary emphysema, according to the ME’s office, which did not provide further details.

On Saturday, Pennsylvania state officials said a 73-year-old man from Allentown died, in part due to heat exposure. On Saturday, Pennsylvania state officials said a 73-year-old man from Allentown died, in part due to heat exposure. 

Libraries in Philadelphia are open as cooling centers to provide some relief to residents without air conditioning. SEPTA, the metro bus system, has parked buses throughout the city to also act as cooling centers. 

Sunday will also be a scorcher in the City of Brotherly Love with a forecasted high of 101 degrees, compared to the average temperature for this time of year of 88 degrees.

Officials in Boston announced Friday that the 2022 Boston Triathlon will be moved from Sunday, July 24 to Aug. 21 in an effort to try to avoid the heat.

The 2022 New York City Triathlon is still scheduled to continue on Sunday when the Heat Index is forecast to be up to 104 degrees along some parts of the event. However, organizers have decided to shorten parts of the event because of the dangerous heat as well. 

The Triathlon Bike will be reduced from 40k (24.8 miles) to 20K (12.4 miles) and the run reduced from 6.2 miles to 2.5 miles.

“While it is disappointing to reduce the length of both races, our number one priority is to do all we can to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our competitors, volunteers, medical personnel and spectators,” Triathlon officials said. 

On Sunday, the heat index will cross into triple digits in Boston, New York City and Washington.

Across the Northeast, the overnight hours won’t offer much relief from hot and humid conditions, with nighttime temperatures remaining in the upper 70s through Sunday.

Visitors and residents in the nation’s capital will also want to stay hydrated through the weekend, with high temperatures forecast into the high 90s and a possible 100-degree high on Sunday, about 10 degrees above average.

As these temperatures continue to skyrocket, it’s imperative to take the proper precautions to stay cool and safe.

First off, try to limit the time spent outdoors during excessive heat. The best time to be outdoors would be early in the morning or later in the evening.

If you need to go outdoors during the day, wear loose, lightweight and light-colored clothing and drink plenty of fluids.

Always “look before you lock” to ensure you have not left any children or pets inside a car. Temperatures inside a locked vehicle with the windows rolled up can be deadly.

Actress Anne Heche Suffers Severe Burns After Crashing Car Into Los Angeles Home

Published

on

Actress Anne Heche, known for her roles in such films as Donnie Brasco, Volcano and I Know What You Did Last Summer, was involved in a fiery car crash in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles on Friday.

According to TMZ, Heche was driving a blue Mini Cooper and had first crashed into the garage of an apartment complex. Residents of the apartment complex tried to get her out of the vehicle but she backed up and sped off.

Footage of Heche speeding down the streets of her neighborhood had been obtained by TMZ as well as her initial encounter at the apartment complex.

In the first clip, you can hear her car crash towards the end. It has been reported that the actress crashed into someone’s home, causing her vehicle and the house to erupt into flames. Heche suffered severe burns and was resisting being taken away in a stretcher. You can also view footage of this via the TMZ article.

It has not been confirmed whether alcohol has been involved in the incident since her condition prevents doctors from performing any tests to determine if she was driving under the influence. She is currently intubated in the hospital but expected to live.

These are the vulgar license-plate requests the DMV has rejected

Published

on

Stay CL4SSY, New York!

The state Department of Motor Vehicles nixed 3,752 requests for vanity license plates in the last three years because it deemed them too raunchy, radical or simply ridiculous.

New York’s personalized plates go for $60 initially, and then $31.25 annually for renewal. You can get any plate as long as no one else has it and it’s not offensive.

Odds are a request for a plate that marks a wedding anniversary or shows your allegiance to a team — like METS86 — will pass muster with the DMV gatekeepers.

Vulgarity won’t get you to first base.

So plates with the phrase LFGM — the acronym for Pete Alonso’s “Let’s F–king Go Mets” rallying cry — did not make the cut.

And you won’t see anyone driving around with the custom plates MILFDAD, AS5M4N and WLHUNG.

Crude meanings such as “MILFDAD” are unacceptable by the DMV.

The DMV also put NICEBUNS, FATFANNY, GOTAPOOP and BENDOVER in the rear-view mirror.

The DMV also shot down such dark requests as DEADGIRL, GENOC1DE, S8TAN, DETONATE and MURDERM3.

Getting political is a dead end too — FJOEBIDN, FDTRUMP and CNNLIES were nixed.

LUDEDUDE, NARCO, GOT METH and BLUNT also went up in smoke.

Staten Island attorney Bill Dertinger said his blue 1995 Jaguar SJS was tagged with ESQLTD after his company and his 2014 Porsche had the plate GHOSTGTS because the sleek sportscar was white.

“The plates can make you stand out — which can be a curse or a blessing,” the 54-year-old Dertinger said. “Make sure you don’t cut anybody off.”

There must be a New York Jets fan playing referee at the DMV because a request for the seemingly innocent plate GASE was sidelined. Ex-Jets head coach Adam Gase had an offensive 9-23 win-loss record during his forgettable two-year tenure.

The DMV would not reveal who gives the final yea or nay.

“The DMV reviews all custom license plate requests and works hard to ensure that any combinations that may be considered objectionable are rejected,” said agency spokesman Tim O’Brien.

“GLOCKS” referring to guns is not accepted by the DMV.

He said guidelines on what plate combinations are restricted can be found on the DMV website: https://dmv.ny.gov/learn-about-personalized-plates. Approximately 50,000 personalized and custom plates are sold per year, O’Brien said.
