KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The summer heat is getting even more dangerous. Monday alone, the University of Kansas Hospital treated five people for heat-related illnesses. Over the summer, they've treated people for everything from heat exhaustion to burned feet from hot sidewalks and asphalt.
While the heat is dangerous, it's a blessing for some businesses that do well in the heat. The new Sea Life Aquarium in Crown Center is packed on hot days, as are many movie theaters, swimming pools, and ice cream shops.
Scooter's Coffee and Yogurt employees say they're seeing an increase in business this summer, especially since they added frozen yogurt to the menu in March. Employees say usually the summer would be a slow time, but not anymore.
"Business has picked up a lot at night because people want to come in, cool off, and sit down enjoy a delicious bowl of yogurt," said R.J. Seefus.
