Deadly heat wave to remain Thursday -

A blistering heat wave gripping much of the country is expected to remain Thursday as officials blamed nearly two dozen deaths on the high temperatures.

This heat wave could go into the weekend, forecasters say.

"After several days of deadly heat and humidity as many as 22 people have died," the National Weather Service said Wednesday.

Across the United States, about 141 million people are under heat advisories and warnings.

Almost half of the country continues to sizzle in triple-digit temperatures, with Missouri officials investigating whether 13 deaths could be heat-related.
