HYDERABAD, India (AP) - People in India are doing whatever they can to stay cool as soaring temperatures have contributed to the deaths of more than 1,400 people, mostly in southern India.

Officials are warning people to stay out of the sun, cover their heads and drink water.

Doctors are on alert for heat-related illness, while volunteers are distributing salted buttermilk or raw onions - both thought to be hydrating.

Forecasters say the heat will likely continue for several more days.
