June 29, 2013

Music lovers attending the Vans Warped Tour at the Silverton Casino are getting hammered by the sun with temperatures hitting OVER 115 Fahrenheit as I type! Over 200 people were treated for heat exhaustion, 34 of those ending up in Las Vegas area hospitals. And it’s not over by a long shot, by 5:PM the temps are expected to reach an astonishing 117°, an all-time record high for Las Vegas.
