We all know that humidity can make it feel hotter than it actually is — but 101,006 degrees hotter would be quite the weather phenom.
“Everyone in McKinney is dead,” Delkus joked.
"Everyone in McKinney is dead! The heat index in McKinney is 10,000, what is that, 101,105? It's hot in McKinney!" WFAA's Pete Delkus had a great reaction to a graphic error, starting about the 1:00 mark here. pic.twitter.com/M9h1gmvOcd

The map just before the heat index one showed that the air temperature in McKinney, Texas, was 99 degrees — which was in line with many of the other locales shown on the map.
The heat index for cities around McKinney was ranged from the low 100s to 110, so it’s likely that 101,105 figure was the combination of “101” and “105” somehow getting stuck next to each other in the computer.
Not to fear, however, the city of McKinney was not vaporized by some freak heat dome. Whew.
