- Power grid officials ask public to cut electrical use due to heat
By Jenna Lyons - Friday Sep 1, 2017
California energy officials are asking residents tempted to blast air conditioners during the heat wave Friday to cut back on electricity use. The California Independent System Operator, which oversees 80 percent of the state’s electrical grid, issued a statewide alert for energy conservation from 1 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday. Persistent hot temperatures puts added stress on the power grid, the company said. The alert comes as officials project a combination of limited power supply conditions and record demand. To prevent potential power outages, turn off unnecessary lights, set air conditioners to 78 degrees or higher, and avoid using major appliances between 1 p.m. and 10 p.m.
- Temperate Northwest gets blasted with furnace-like heat
By STEVEN DUBOIS, Associated Press - Wednesday Aug 2, 2017
(AP) — Forecasts for triple-digit heat have caused a minor panic across the Pacific Northwest, a region famous for cool weather that is getting blasted with a Phoenix-like furnace after a coastal weather pattern went into reverse.The temperatures feel particularly searing in normally temperate cities across Oregon and Washington, where many people do not have air conditioning because they rarely need it.Many communities have opened cooling centers and warned residents to stay hydrated, avoid strenuous activity and keep their dogs out of parked vehicles.The National Weather Service slightly dialed back its forecast for Portland to match or break its record high of 107 degrees (41.7 Celsius).Portland's light-rail trains are operating at slower speeds amid concern that the heat will cause tracks to expand and risk a derailment.Heater, who endures jokes about her last name, said having air conditioning was a requirement when she moved to the fourth floor in a recently constructed apartment building.Amazon took lengths to keep the potential employees comfortable, handing out iced bottles of water.Some temporary workers hired for the day ferried trays of cups overflowing with blue, red and yellow shaved ice to the sweltering applicants from a truck playing steel-drum music.
- Giants take heat: 95 degrees at game time, and then it soared
By John Shea - Sunday Sep 3, 2017
So the hitting conditions are advantageous in this weather? Balls flying off bats? A hitters’ paradise? So true Friday. Not so true Saturday — at least until Nick Hundley’s walk-off homer in the 10th inning. For most of the day, Jeff Samardzija and Lance Lynn turned AT&T Park back into a pitchers’ yard, each showing efficiency and dominance through much of a game witnessed by fans using makeshift fans. Newspapers, programs, foam fingers. Anything to circulate air. The first-pitch temperature was 95 degrees, and it soared from there — matching the second-hottest game in the 18-year history of the Giants’ downtown ballpark.
