WALESKA, Ga. (AP) - Eight high school students at a band camp
were treated for heat exhaustion as a sweltering heat wave
continues across Georgia.
Authorities say the students were at Reinhardt College's campus
in Waleska when they became ill Thursday morning.
They were taken to a hospital.
The camp halted practices in the morning because the heat index
reached 105 degrees.
Forecasters at the National Weather Service expect temperatures
to remain in the upper 90s in most of the state.
Similar highs are forecast for Thursday.
Atlanta is continuing a 14-day stretch of above-90 highs, while
Columbus and Macon are both continuing a 30-day stretch.
