HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — It may not be a cause for celebration to some, but for several volunteers around Houston, they were happy to recognize “Heat Day.”
No, this is not an official holiday, but a project aimed at scientifically mapping out some of the hottest spots across the city.
“We should care even though we know it’s hot every summer,” said Meredith Jennings, a post-doctoral research scientist with Houston Advanced Research Center. “The science tells us that it’s going to get even hotter.”
