Since last week in a number of eastern provinces of Canada, hot weather has set in, which caused the death of at least six people in Montreal (province of Quebec).
According to the representative of the Ministry of Health of Montreal, Milen Druon, over the past few days due to severe weather conditions killed at least six townspeople. The number of emergency calls increased dramatically. Druon urged residents of Montreal to take seriously the situation.
The last time the heat was permanently installed in Montreal in the summer of 2010, Druon recalled. Then 106 people died in the city.
According to the National Meteorological Bureau, in the southern regions of the provinces of Ontario and Quebec, as well as in the Atlantic regions of Canada since last week, record hot weather set. Air during the day warms up to 30-40 degrees Celsius. Meteorologists believe that only by June 6 in Eastern Canada will come a cold front.
