Scorcher in Calgary prompts heat warning

The downtown Calgary skyline and Centre Street Bridge were photographed on Friday, July 10, 2020.

Calgary was as hot as Hell on Saturday, prompting a heat warning from Environment Canada that has continued into Sunday.

Hell, Mich., that is, where temperatures also approached 29 C.

Temperatures are expected to reach and even exceed 29 C while only dropping to near 14 C overnight until mid-week, according to Environment Canada.

The scorching temperatures elevate risks of heat-related illnesses, heat strokes and heat exhaustion, so authorities are recommending Calgarians take precautions, including:

  • Reschedule outdoor activities to cooler times during the day
  • Take frequent breaks from the heat
  • Spend time in cooled indoor spaces when possible
  • Stay hydrated with non-alcohol and non-caffeinated beverages
  • Do not leave pets or children inside vehicles for any period of time

“Pay particular attention to individuals that can experience earlier or more severe effects from heat including infants, children, seniors, and individuals with pre-existing lung, heart, kidney, nervous system, mental health or diabetic conditions, outdoor workers, as well as those who are socially isolated,” said the

heat advisory

.

It is recommended Calgarians monitor for symptoms related to heat exhaustion or stroke, including a high body temperature, decreased sweat, confusion, fainting and unconsciousness.
