Another scorching day in the United States on Saturday. Over two dozen deaths have been attributed to the extreme heat from Iowa to the East Coast -- among them, a four-month-old Indiana girl who, police say, was left in a car outside her home when temperatures were above 100 degrees Fahrenheit. The National Weather Service has issued excessive heat warnings for cities including Washington, where temperatures reached 103 degrees, and New York and Philadelphia, where temperatures were hovering at or near triple digits. One Chicago resident says that without A/C, he's resorted to sitting in a cold bathtub. (SOUNDBITE) (English) LEW KIMMONS, RESIDENT OF BUILDING, SAYING: "It's very hot inside, the hallways are extremely hot. The rooms are extremely hot. The people up in there, they leave their doors open so some air can circulate through there. Me, I just sit in the bathtub all day because I only have a fan." But forecasters say some of the areas hit hardest by the prolonged heat wave could soon get relief. A cold front from Canada was expected to move south and break the hot spell by Monday. Severe weather, including thunderstorms and damaging winds, were likely to accompany the cooler temperatures. Travis Brecher, Reuters
