The New York Times

HEAT BRINGS DEATH TO OVER 200 PERSONS.

Several Hundred Others Collapse in Stifling Atmosphere.

STORES AND OFFICES CLOSE

Foundries and Factories Shut Down, Building Operations Cease.

Street Car Service Hampered by Exhaustion of Employees — Fierce Squalls Afford Some Relief to the Suffering City.

Over 200 deaths in all the boroughs and over 300 cases of prostration in Manhattan alone, two heat records smashed to smithereens, and two furious black squalls which brought some relief was the result of yesterday’s meteorological record.

The maximum temperature came at 2:15 o’clock in the afternoon, when the mercury reached the 99- degree mark—within one degree of the highest record in the history of 1e Weather Bureau, and equal to the high- previous July record, and 5 degrees higher than the previous July 2 record om
the books of the bureau.

“The heat was so0 intense that the entire city was as If paralyzed. Many big companies and wholesale houses closed their doors as early as noon, in order to give their stenographers and clerks 2 chance to flee the city. Almost all of the insurance companies closed their doors. The Metropolitan Street Railway Company was unable to run its cars on strict schedule time for want of men to take the place of those who gave out. All work on the tunnel as well as on buildings and construction work throughout the city was suspended, and even the hospitals were affected.

    July,1911 heatwave was New England’s most deadly natural disaster. Yes more deadly than Hurricane of Sept,1938, Blizzard of ’78, so on and so on.
