Two elderly residents who were found dead Tuesday morning in a Kansas City, Kan., home are believed to be victims of heat.

Kansas City police say the two were found just after 9 a.m. in a
home that had no air conditioning. There were no signs of foul
play.

Identities of the victims have not been released. Police say
autopsies will be conducted to determine the official cause of
death.

A broad swath of the Midwest, including Missouri and Kansas, is
under a heat advisory through Wednesday. The National Weather
Service says high temperatures and high humidity are combining to
create head indexes of 105 to 110 degrees.
