LOOMIS, California (KCRA) – They had only gotten through the letter D before Del Oro High School canceled Saturday’s graduation ceremony due to many in the audience suffering from heat exhaustion.

The Loomis, California school’s graduation ceremony was scheduled for 9 a.m. and was only supposed to last an hour.

At 9:15 a.m., firefighters and ambulances arrived after some in the audience began passing out.

Fifteen people suffered from heat exhaustion and heat stroke, according to fire officials.

Two of the victims are in critical condition, and all are expected to survive.

The school says it will send remaining graduates their diplomas in the mail. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
