Environment Canada issues heat warning for P.E.I

Extreme heat warnings have been issued across southwestern Ontario

Another hot week is in store for the region, but the heat will finally lose its intensity as the weekend approaches.

At least eight people in the US and Canada have died in the past week due to the intense heat wave affecting parts of North America.

Eventually that area of high pressure will weaken, allowing the jet stream to drift southward. "However the daytime highs are still expected near 30 and overnight lows in the high teens", Environment Canada said Monday. The previous record was 35.

"It's tragic, but whenever there are heat waves like this, and we will have more heat than before because of changes to the climate, the people who are weakened and vulnerable are the most affected", he said. "So, at least a bit of a break from this intense heat that we've been experiencing".

Toronto's longest heat wave was 12 days in 1953, but the city sees a heat wave lasting a week or so about every five to 10 years, Ms. Hobelman said.

He says the new system is more accurate. Before that, it was 2001.

But relief is coming, however slowly.

Isolated adults, seniors, young children, people experiencing homelessness and people with certain mental health illnesses, chronic illnesses, heart and lung issues or limited mobility are at greater risk of heat-related illnesses.

The city is in the midst of an "extreme heat event", Environment Canada said in its warning on Sunday.

Canada Day was supposed to start out sunny in the morning, turning to a mix of sun and cloud in the afternoon, with a 30 per cent chance of showers.

"There are still two days left of particularly hot weather with particularly high humidex levels", Genereux said.

To prevent heat stress during a heat alert, Dr. Strang suggests to stay in a shaded, cool or air-conditioned area, drink plenty of water, wear light-coloured clothing and to not leave anyone or any animal unattended in vehicles.
