PHOENIX, ARIZONA - JULY 13: Shelia Nunez, 40, cools her dog with ice while sitting under a shaded bus stop on July 13, 2023 in Phoenix, Arizona. "I've tried everything to get off the streets. There's too many people already like me to get the help that I need and the heat just makes everything harder... I just keep eating ice and don't allow it to get to me, but sometimes it does because I feel like 'man, there's no help out here, i'm gonna die.' I've tried everything. I've tried to get help at churches, school facilities and even rehab, but the system won't allow me to escape... I can't get off the streets. I've thought about leaving the state because I can't make it here," said Nunez. Today marks the Phoenix area's 14th consecutive day of temperatures exceeding 110 degrees. Record-breaking temperatures continue soaring as prolonged heatwaves sweep across the Southwest. (Photo by Brandon Bell/Getty Images)
