Southwest U.S. preps for 120-degree temps

By -NO AUTHOR-

(Associated Press) When bracing for 120 degrees, it’s all about the water.

People in places like Palm Springs and Phoenix are used to seriously high temperatures, but 120 degrees becomes all the talk around the water cooler. And with the health dangers of heat and dehydration, that’s where authorities hope they keep coming back.
