The heat wave gripping much of the country will continue its hold into Saturday.

There were excessive heat-warnings Friday for all of Iowa, Indiana and Illinois as well as much of Wisconsin, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio and Kentucky, and parts of Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey and Delaware. The National Weather Service says heat warnings and advisories will be continued or expanded Saturday, with the heat largely centered over Ohio Valley and Mid-Atlantic states.

In the Midwest, even low temperatures have been setting record highs, meaning people aren't getting any relief overnight.

Storms that have knocked out power in some states have made riding out the heat even more difficult.

Some 200,000 people were still without power in West Virginia, and heat advisories are in place for those folks through Saturday.
