Nearly 500 deaths due to Heat Wave recorded in Canada

Canada: With atleast 486 deaths reported over a five day period due to the historic heat wave in western Canada, the situation seems to worsen as the toll is expected to rise.

“It is believed likely that the significant increase in deaths reported is attributable to the extreme weather B.C. has experiences and continues to impact many parts of our province,” Chief Coroner Lisa Lapointe said in a statement.

A new Canadian record was set this week in Lytton, British Columbia, where the temperature reached 121 degrees Fahrenheit (49.5 degrees Celsius). The heat has stunned residents in a region accustomed to weather so cool and chilly at this time of the year that June is often referred to as “Juneuary.”
