  • Canada Six days of heat wave kill 18 in Quebec temperatures likely to drop on Friday

Environment Canada lifted heat warnings Friday, despite expectations that temperatures will once again rise early next week.

Dr. Mylene Drouin, the regional director of Montreal's public health department, said most of the 18 victims in the metropolis were men aged between 53 and 85 who lived in places with no air conditioning.

"A lot of them have a chronic disease condition", said Dr. Mylene Drouin, head of the regional health authority.

More than 30 people have died as a result of a heat wave in the Canadian province of Quebec, officials said Thursday.

This, too, played a factor in the current heat wave, which began June 29.

"We would prefer having no deaths related to heat but with four days of intense heat and especially hot nights, we expect to see an impact on people's health", Kaiser said.

The other victims were reported in the southwest of the French-Canadian province, the Quebec health ministry said.

In a press conference Wednesday, Mayor Valérie Plante said she is counting on Montrealers to knock on doors "just to find out if the person is O.K. It's a team effort". "The elderly, people with chronic diseases and people with mental health problems are more at risk".

In Ontario, a spokeswoman for the coroner's office said it couldn't confirm if there were any heat-related deaths, adding it could take weeks or several months to complete such probes.

Meanwhile, a unsafe heat wave is expected to grip California and parts of the southwest Friday and into the weekend, threatening millions of people and likely fueling existing wildfires in the United States.
