(AP) — How hot is it? It isn’t a setup for a joke, but it’s a setup for a new federal website. The Biden administration has launched a site that can help people and local governments fight back against the unrelenting heatwave melting much of the nation. The site includes maps, forecasts and health advice. At the height of the swelter, nearly half the nation — 154.6 million people — endured high temperatures.
