AP News's Corey Williams and Jim Salter are reporting on the massive heatwave affecting the U.S. and give tips to stay cool.

As the U.S. grapples with an intense heat wave, more than 70 million people face extreme heat alerts, marking potentially the longest such event in decades for some regions. Outdoor workers, from gardeners to road crews, are particularly at risk. Safety measures are emphasized, including hydration, frequent breaks, and adjusting work hours to cooler parts of the day. With record highs expected, especially in urban areas like Chicago and Detroit, recognizing signs of heat exhaustion and reducing sun exposure are critical for safety.
