Heat Attributed To Deaths In Kansas

KSCB News - August 3, 2011 8:04 am

The Kansas Department of Health and
Environment says heat has contributed to the deaths of at least
three people this summer in Kansas.
KDHE spokeswoman Miranda Myrick said Tuesday that Kansas
hospitals have reported more than 440 people have gone to their
hospitals with heat-related illnesses such as heat exhaustion.
The heat wave gripping Kansas also has taken a toll on animals.
The manager of a Great Bend operation that picks up dead cattle
from feed yards and ranches says he may run seven days a week to
keep up.
Lee Seder of Central Kansas Rendering says the company picked up
148 dead cattle Monday, up from the normal 60.
