PHOENIX (AP) — About 4,000 homes in the metropolitan Phoenix area are without power — and air-conditioning — on a record-shattering day of heat in one of the nation's hottest cities.

Phoenix hit a high temperature of 118 degrees on Saturday, topping the city's 10-year-old record of 116 degrees for the date.

Meteorologists for the National Weather Service say afternoon clouds from monsoon activity likely kept the area from reaching 120 degrees, but they say it's still the city's hottest day so far this year.

The monsoon also brought strong wind gusts that toppled power lines and knocked out electricity to 1,500 homes in northeast Phoenix and 2,400 homes scattered throughout the area.
