TOMS RIVER, N.J. — Another wave of oppressive heat has clamped down on a broad swath of Eastern states, with temperatures in the 90s and residents scrambling for shade or just staying indoors.
In the Mid-Atlantic, already the locus for brutal temperatures several times this month, weather experts warned of the dangerous conditions Saturday and residents resigned themselves to coping with the discomfort.
One possible weather-related death was reported in Maryland, where paramedics said the high temperatures and humidity likely played a role in the death of a 20-year-old man who was biking, went into cardiac arrest and hit his head on a tree as he fell.
