Extreme Heat Wave in Canada Claims at Least 19 Lives
Extreme heat and humidity has blanketed eastern and central Canada, the national broadcaster CBC said.
The heatwave is reportedly responsible for 14 deaths in Montreal and five in the Eastern Townships, a rural area just east of the city.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has offered condolences to those bereaved. He warned that record temperatures were expected to continue.

Meanwhile, Canada’s emergency service reportedly said it had received over 1,200 calls a day since the heat wave began, a 30 percent uptick from its normal operations.

    The worst heat wave in decades has claimed 21 lives in Canada with another day of scorching temperatures and related smog expected Thursday.

    The province of Quebec was hit with highs of 86 F plus temperatures (30 C) beginning June 29 with accompanying humidex levels of between 104 F – 113 F (40 C -45 C).

    The most affected areas are in the Montreal region and firefighters and police there have knocked on 15,000 doors in the past week to check on the welfare of residents.

    The victims who succumbed to the heat were between the ages of 50 and 80 and did not have air conditioning in their residences and lived alone in apartments, officials said.
