Record-breaking heatwaves in the US Pacific Northwest have affected the lives and lifestyles of millions of Americans in areas that have now been placed under warnings of excessive heat. This report delves into how affected communities have been coping and their thoughts on these fast-changing weather phenomena.

The US is reeling under unprecedented temperatures as two back-to-back heatwaves have killed almost 200 people and forced many to evacuate because of the raging wildfires. The increasing frequency and intensity of such weather events, including tornadoes and floods, have started to raise a lot of concerns and questions about our existence and the many drastic changes we will experience and have to undertake in the coming years. It has also given more ammunition to climate change advocates, including the Biden government, to press ahead with their commitments. As Americans across the affected regions continue to brace themselves for the worst, how are they coping with the ongoing heatwave? Piplsay polled 26,292 people to get some insights.

Survey Methodology: This Piplsay survey was conducted nationwide in the US  from July 9-11, 2021. We received 26,292 online responses from individuals aged 18 years and older.
