“We know this is dangerous,” Castellan said CBC.
In four Canadian provinces, dozens of heatwaves have dropped in recent days. Elsewhere in the city of Lytton in southwestern Canada’s British Columbia, it was 47.9 degrees Celsius on Tuesday – the hottest temperature ever measured in Canada. On Monday, the city set a new national heating record.
The meteorologist could not find the words.
– There are not enough words to describe this. Castellon says we are confused about how many heat logs are broken.
Police in Burnaby told the CBC that they responded to 25 unexpected deaths in 24 hours on Monday, many of them elderly. Police believe heat was a factor in the deaths.
The news agency AFP writes Tuesday night that at least 34 people have died suddenly during a heat wave in the Vancouver area.
However, the cause of death has not been confirmed.
Extreme temperatures have increased the need for emergency telephony. Over the weekend, ambulance crews responded to 187 reports of fatigue due to heat and 52 side heat impacts.
The CBC writes that lowering the temperature at night also increases the risk of health problems so that people do not get rid of unusually high temperatures.
Many records stand for fall
According to David Phillips, a climate scientist at the ECC, both the timing, intensity and duration of heat waves may be contributing to global warming. The channel writes that the same is true for many meteorologists.
– When it comes to heat waves like this we know that this is only the tip of the iceberg. We should expect it, and we should expect more from it, says meteorologist Castellon.
Extreme warnings have been issued across Canada and meteorologists expect new heatwaves to subside this week.
The “hot dome” now faces east in the Canadian province of British Columbia, reaching some parts of the province of Alberta.
The heat led to the sale of fans and air conditioners. In many places, areas where people can come and go have also been created, he writes BBC. The heat means schools and universities have to close. This also applies to many vaccination and testing centers.

Alarms have also been sounded, and meteorologists believe hundreds of heat recordings will fall.
