LINCOLN, Neb. — An unusual, late-summer heat wave has enveloped much of the Midwest, putting schools and sports events on hold.Schools in Iowa, Nebraska, Wisconsin, the Dakotas and Illinois let out early on Monday as temperatures crept toward the mid-90s — beyond in some places. After-school sports practices and evening games were canceled in St. Paul, Minn., and misting stations were keeping people cool at the Minnesota State Fair, where about 90 fairgoers had been treated for heat-related illnesses over the weekend.The heat wave is supposed to last through much of the week, the National Weather Service said. Heat of this magnitude is unusual for this time of year, but not unprecedented. In Des Moines, Iowa, for instance, temperatures on Aug. 26 have reached at least 100 degrees at least six times since 1881.School districts took precautions, not wanting to put students and teachers in sweaty — and possibly dangerous — situations.In central Iowa, Marshalltown Community School District administrators canceled afternoon preschool classes on Monday and Tuesday and were planning to release other students two hours early. Parts of all 10 of district buildings have air conditioning, but some rooms aren’t connected.“The buildings can heat up pretty fast, especially when you have kids in there,” district spokesman Jason Staker said. “It’s not a good environment for students or teachers.”Five elementary schools in Fargo, North Dakota, canceled classes through Wednesday because the buildings weren’t fully air-conditioned. Temperatures inside them on Sunday ranged from 85 degrees to 90 degrees, Fargo Schools Superintendent Jeff Schatz said.
The University of Alaska Fairbanks is partnering with Sandia National Laboratory to conduct science in the Arctic. UAF recently signed an agreement with the Albuquerque, New Mexico based government owned lab, which also has research facilities on Alaska’s North Slope.UAF Geophysical Institute Director Robert McCoy says the agreement centers on some distinct areas of study, including disaster response, space weather, and a long running atmospheric radiation measurement program.”We’ve been collaborating there,” McCoy said. “But also, they’ve been flying unmanned aircraft, and we’ve been flying unmanned aircraft. So we’re trying to partner to do more of that kinda work.”McCoy says UAF and Sandia officials are discussing the possibility of building a base for unmanned aerial vehicles west of Prudhoe Bay near Oliktok Point, where UAF, Sandia and NASA have launched flights in recent years.”It’d be nice to have a more elaborate facility that we can carry out more science,” McCoy said.McCoy says the UAV base is in the early discussion phase, and there’s no funding yet. He says the base would allow flights to the North Pole, and be open to other universities and agencies to contract out for research. He says the agreement signed by UAF and Sandia allows fund sharing between the two entities to forward research projects.
