The above average heat is having an impact on the homeless population in Sioux Falls and donations to help them are evaporating.
Agencies who help the homeless and low-income population say they're now all out of donations of water.
It's uncomfortable for anyone outdoors in this scorching heat, but it can turn dangerous quickly.
Heat related illness is something LeRoy Pomani knows all to well, after being admitted to the ICU last week.
"I just knew I was getting sick. I couldn't hold nothing down," Pomani said. "My boss took me into the ER I couldn't feel my left arm and that was the reason why we went, but I just kept feeling like I was going to pass out."
After several days of IVs, Pomani is hydrated and back downtown.
"The homeless community needs water to stay hydrated," Merle Griebel said. "That's important."
Several homeless agencies are trying to prevent more heat-related illnesses with free bottled water, but Good Shepard Executive Directory Marie Krell says demand is climbing higher than the heat index.
"Thankfully somebody donated them," Krell said. "Currently we are out of water."
"We are totally out," Salvation Army Major Betty Bender said.
This rack at the Salvation Army is empty after giving away 500 bottles since Monday.
While both agencies do have drinking fountains and offer cups of water, they agree that's not enough.
"We don't have something that the people can take with them and stay hydrated when they're out and about walking around," Krell said.
"They get dehydrated and your whole body will shut down, your kidneys, everything. They really need to keep hydrated," Bender said.
Both the Good Shepard and Salvation Army are open during the day so people can come inside and cool off.
If you would like to help, both agencies accept drop-off donations.
