In 1995 I was working in Chicago (long story - not one of my better decisions), when a sudden spike in temperature and humidity approached. I'll take this to my grave. The Executive Producer at the TV station wanted to do schtick. "Which city will be hotter, Chicago or Phoenix? C'mom Paul, let's have some FUN with this segment!" I told her that people were going to die, that this was no time for happy-talk-news. Within 3 days a total of 750 people had perished, mostly elderly and shut-ins.
