IT FEELS LIKE HELL in Philadelphia, and it's expected to get worse this weekend.
So far, the scorching temperatures have left four Philadelphians dead. Others have suffered from heat-related illnesses. And with temperatures expected to top 100 on Saturday, officials said that more deaths are possible.
The city on Wednesday issued an excessive-heat warning that runs through Sunday.
"Help your neighbors, help your family, help your friends; everyone knows someone who is potentially vulnerable under these circumstances," Mayor Nutter said at a City Hall news conference on Thursday. "It could be a senior citizen on your block, it could be a family member, a relative … check on them, check to see that they're OK."
