Record breaking temperatures hit Indianapolis Tuesday afternoon. The heat wave is making September feel more like mid-summer.

Despite the hot weather, officials with Indianapolis Power and Light do not believe there will be any disruptions in service.

“At this point, we’re not anticipating any issues with that and we’re just thankful that it looks like we won’t have an extended period of heat but perhaps just a few days here,” said Derek Trovillion, with IPL.

Hoosiers are wondering how much this hot weather will end up costing them. Simone Harris said she was looking forward to turning off her air conditioning and opening the windows.

“I was going to try and save some money and keep the A/C off for the rest of the year because I thought it was going to cool down but obviously, you know, there was another plan and the heat decided to come in,” said Harris.
