Sunday’s temperatures in British Columbia’s Lytton were 46.6 ° C on Sunday, 47.9 C on Monday and 49.5 ° C on Tuesday, one of 40 records set in recent days in British Columbia.

According to the National Weather Service, the weekend heat wave is an “unprecedented event” that is extremely dangerous to the environment and people. “High heat and humidity significantly increase the risk of heat-related diseases, especially for people who work or participate in outdoor activities.”– As stated in the message. In the Greater Vancouver area, police said there were at least 134 deaths from the three-day heat wave, most of them between the ages of 70 and 92, but sudden deaths from the heat waves also occurred among very young people.
