The Nation : South Still Bakes; 1 Dies

July 11, 1986

The southern Atlantic Coast continued to swelter as a heat wave went into its fifth day and temperatures climbed above 100 degrees in Georgia and South Carolina, where the heat was blamed for one death. In Georgia, where temperatures have reached 100 all week, heat has killed 400,000 chickens, the Georgia Department of Agriculture said. Record highs were reported in Columbia, S.C., 103; Augusta, Ga., 102; Savannah, Ga., 101, and Charleston, S.C., 100. Meanwhile, showers and thunderstorms drenched most of the Mississippi Valley, the lower Ohio Valley, the southern Appalachians, central Virginia and North Carolina.
