Extreme heatwave headed for U.S.- Oklahomans urged to pray


Crimeny, they’ve been living with these heat waves ever since I can remember and most of them don’t seem to mind the heat because it gives them something to complain about. In Dallas it’s not unusual for temps to go over 100 degrees around mid June and not have a single double digit day until the end of August, it doesn’t get below 90 degrees at night either.

July 15, 2011 TULSA – While much of the U.S. was cooler Thursday ahead of another heat wave, temperatures were still around triple digits in Oklahoma and Texas — where ways to beat the heat included dumping 2,400 pounds of ice into a pool with hundreds of people. “The stage is being set for a massive heat wave to develop into next week as a large area of high pressure is anticipated to circulate hot and humid air over much of the central and eastern U.S.,” the National Weather Service warned. “Maximum heat index values of at least 100°F are likely across much of this area by the middle of next week, with heat index values in excess of 110°F possible over portions of these areas.” “The big story for the coming weekend will be the building heat,” added Jim Keeney, a National Weather Service meteorologist. “It looks like it’s going to be a long-term heat wave.” In the thick of the heat wave is Oklahoma where Gov. Mary Fallin asked Oklahomans to pray for rain this Sunday. “The power of prayer is a wonderful thing, and I would ask every Oklahoman to look to a greater power this weekend and ask for rain,” Fallin said in a news release on Thursday.

  1. Ya I’m in Canada, and the temp is reaching a very normal 27C or 88F. So I really wonder why having temps in the triple digits in July is such a concern for Oklahoma. Is that not what temps you would expect in the summer?

    • Exactly! I used to live in that hell hole and the heat was one of the primary factors that made me move to a milder climate. …along with the religious fundamentalism. Those people typically fry every summer…why they’re praying for mercy now is beyond me! In my opinion God is punishing them (lol!!)for voting all the right wing extremist into office who are systematically dismantling public government in So States. They’re attempting to eliminate minimum wage laws, child labor laws, right to privacy laws for women….firing teachers, firemen and police officers….

      You get what you deserve, what you work hard for….so fry baby fry! lol!
