KARACHI, PAKISTAN -- Maybe it's global warming. Maybe it's just summer. Either way, it's frickin hot in Pakistan.

Almost 900 people are dead in the southern part of the Middle Eastern country. Temperatures hit 113 degrees over the weekend, and now hospitals and morgues are overflowing.

Adding to the hot mess, frequent power outages mean no AC or running water. Relief centers have been opened up and crews are handing out water and salt tablets, but the fear is that things are going to get worse before they improve.

Over the last four days, some 8,000 people have been treated at just one of Karachi's hospitals, mostly for heat stroke.
