Heat records set in Pacific Northwest
Seattle and Portland, Ore., set records Sunday for most consecutive days of high temperature.
In Seattle, the temperature rose to 91 by early afternoon, the record sixth straight day to exceed 90 degrees. In Portland on Sunday, temperatures rose above 95 for the seventh day in a row, a record for the city for consecutive days above that mark.
The Oregon medical examiner’s office said Sunday that it was investigating 10 deaths as possibly related to the heat. Temperatures have risen above 100 several times over the past week in the Portland area. Temperatures were expected to decline beginning Monday.
