Officials say the scorching heat wave that pushed temperatures into triple digits claimed the lives of three more elderly people in Pennsylvania.
The Lehigh County coroner's office says a 90-year-old woman was pronounced dead Monday morning of hyperthermia due to excessive heat at her Weisenberg Township home. Officials said the air conditioning wasn't turned on and it was about 100 degrees in the home.
Earlier, the Lehigh County coroner's office said an 86-year-old man died Saturday of hyperthermia after temperatures in his Allentown home topped 90 degrees. In Philadelphia, Health Department spokesman Jeff Moran says an 80-year-old woman found dead Sunday died of heart disease and heat exposure.
Three other people were reported dead in heat-related incidents over the weekend. Most residents across the state received some relief from the high temperatures, as the 12-day heat wave broke across the Northeast.
