The historic heat wave continues today as 20 states have been placed under excessive heat warnings or advisories.
That includes North Carolina.
The National Weather Service expects temperatures in most of the Southeast to exceed 100 degrees.
Over the past week, nearly 1,600 high temperatures have been broken--including 140 all-time highs, according to the National Climatic Data Center.
After Friday's windstorms left millions without power, many people are still braving this heat without electricity; and that means no air conditioning.
Those still without power should seek relief in cooling shelters or sites offering water.
