A combination of record high electrical demand due to a scorching heat wave and low wind generation prompted the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) to call for Texans to conserve energy again on Wednesday.
Heat advisories by the National Weather Service remained in place as temperatures topped 100 degrees for the 12th day in a row in some parts of Texas.
The state capital of Austin will feel like its 110 degrees by mid-afternoon, with similar high temperatures in Dallas, Corpus Christi, San Antonio, and other big cities.
