AND SEARCH CBS CHICAGO IN THE APP STORE OR GOOGLE PLAY. NOT EVERYONE HAS THE LUXURY OF STAYING INSIDE TO BEAT THE HEAT. DANA KOZLOV CAUGHT UP WITH PEOPLE AND JOINS US ALONG THE LAKEFRONT WHERE THE WIND IS PICKING UP. Reporter: A LOT OF UNUSUAL WEATHER THINGS THIS EVENING. 10 MINUTESSAL WINDS UP BLOWING DUST — MINUTES AGO WINDS GUSTING UP AND TEMPERATURES ARE GOING TO REMAIN HIGH, WHICH IS UNUSUAL. SO THE COMBINATION OF IT ALL ISPOSING DIFFICULTIES. THE WORK PATCHING ROADS IS HARD ENOUGH AT 90 PLUS DEGREES AND BLAZING SUNSHINE. IT’S IT’S HOT OUTSIDE AND EVERYBODY IS TRYING TO STAY COOL AND GET DONE FASTER SO, IT ADDS ONTO IT IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THAN ANY OTHER DAY. Reporter: THE EARLIER THAN EXPECTED HEAT IS A CHALLENGE FOR MANY PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY THOSE WITH NO PLACE TO GO TO COOL OFF. WE ARE ALL IN THE SAME BOAT. WE ARE. [AUDIO NOT UNDERSTANDABLE] Reporter: CAROL IS ONE OF ABOUT 30 PEOPLE CURRENTLY LIVING IN TENTS UNDER LAKE SHORE DRIVE AFTER LOSING HER APARTMENT WHEN THE BUILDING WAS SOLD. THE 67-YEAR-OLD DIABETIC AND HER DOG STILL HOPE FOR PERMANENCE. FOR NOW A. $1 BAG OF McDONALD’S ICE HELPS HER COPE. I CHEW ON ICE ALL DAY TO KEEP ME SORT OF COOLED OFF. I DRINK A LOT OF WATER. Reporter: BUT IT’S NOT JUST THE HEAT. IT’S SO DRY LITTLE LEAGUE TEAMS ARE PRACTICALLY PLAYING ON SCORCHED EARTH. THAT MAKES EARTH MOVING EXTRA DEMANDING. UNFORTUNATELY, WE DIDN’T GET TO PICK HOW HOT IT WOULD BE TODAY. SO, WHAT GOT TO BE DONE GOT TO BE DONE. Reporter: THE ONE THING WE ARE NOT FEELING RIGHT NOW THAT WE USUALLY DO IN THE MIDDLE OF SUMMER IS HUMIDITY. THERE’S NOT MUCH OF IT AT LEAST HERE AT THE LAKEFRONT AND FOR SOME THAT HELPS THEM COPE A LITTLE BIT.
