UPDATE: OKLAHOMA CITY -- The number of confirmed heat-related deaths in Oklahoma is now 11 with autopsies pending on 11 other possible heat-deaths.

Spokeswoman Cherokee Ballard at the state medical examiner's office said Tuesday that the latest two deaths are from the Tulsa area.

The Oklahoma Climatological Survey announced Monday that July was the hottest month ever on record in Oklahoma. The survey said the average temperature in the state during the month was 89.1 degrees to break the record of 88.1 degrees set in July 1954.

The survey said the average temperature for July is 81.6 degrees.

The National Weather Service said there is little hope for relief in the near future with highs expected around 110 degrees in much of the state this week.
