The Northeastern United States is a region of the United States as defined by the United States Census Bureau. The region comprises nine states: the New England states of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont; and the Mid-Atlantic states. ... Not all definitions of the Northeastern United States, however, are the same as the Census Bureau's.

Yowbarb:
At least 24 people have perished during this heat wave, and there will be more.
People need to get to cooling centers if they have no air conditioning or way to stay cool at home.
If you need help make a call reach out and ask for someone to take you to a cooling center. Large libraries or supermarkets are often pretty cool, as are movie theaters. A lot of people have no choice but to go out and go to work. Try to limit activities as much as possible. If you have AC stay home if possible. Dress very cool and take cool off showers if you are stuck at home with no power etc. Check on older family members and moms at home with their kids; make sure their AC is working. - Yowbarb
