Regina to see summer scorcher this week
The summer season could prove dangerous in Regina. The forecast for the coming week is 30 degrees or over every day, including a high of 32 on Monday.
The heat of the past several days has also been blamed for at least 45 deaths across the United States.
There are some people who are more at risk than others when extreme heat hits including the elderly, chronically ill, socially disadvantaged, and those who work outside.
There are several different types of heat illness, including heat exhaustion, fainting, heat cramps, rash, heat edema, and heat stroke is the most serious.
Health Canada recommends taking precautions during extreme heat to try and stay out of the sun if you can, and make sure to drink lots of water to head off dehydration before it starts.
Remember never leave people or pets in a parked vehicle. Temperatures in a vehicle can be 25 degrees hotter than outside.
