Three ladies died as a result of the early Chicago heat wave.

Temperatures only just made it into the 90s for a handful of days. However, the deaths of three women were discovered inside a Chicago senior housing facility this month,

leaving the city searching for answers to concerns that were supposed to be answered nearly three decades ago after a longer and worse heat wave killed more than 700 people.

Now, the city — and the country — is confronted with the truth that, as a result of climate change, lethal heat waves can hit almost everywhere

"Hotter and more hazardous heat waves are arriving earlier, in May... and the other factor is that we're becoming older and more people are living alone

 said Eric Klinenberg, a sociologist at New York University who wrote "Heat Wave: A Social Autopsy of Disaster in Chicago" about the 1995 heat wave. "It's a tragedy waiting to happen."

The causes of death for the three women whose bodies were discovered at the James Sneider Apartments on May 14 have yet to be determined by the Cook County Medical Examiner's office.
