As temperatures warm across Indiana there will be a shift in the frequency and severity of extreme heat. Scientists with the Indiana Climate Change Impacts Assessment (IN CCIA) report Hoosiers statewide will see significantly more days with high temperatures reaching 90 °F or more, and the hottest day of the year will consistently reach triple digits.
Extreme heat is the top weather-related killer in the US. In addition to causing heat-related illnesses such as heat stroke, high temperatures increase the number of asthma cases and heart attacks. Heat doesn’t just affect humans. High temperatures can reduce crop yields, kill pets and livestock, damage roadways, and increase energy demand beyond system capacity.
