God have mercy, Dozens dead as heatwave shatters record in Canada.

About 130 people have been confirmed dead by the police of Vancouver in Canada as at Friday, 26th June 2021.

Canada broke it's temperature record for a third straight day. 46.6C (121.3F)

It is reported that the heat over western parts of Canada and the US has been caused by a dome of static High-pressure hot air stretching from California to the Arctic territories. Temperatures have been easing in coastal areas but there is little immediate respite for inland regions.

The number of heat-related fatalities is likely to rise as some areas say they have responded to sudden death incidents but have yet to collate the numbers.

Police Sergeant Steve Addison said "I've been a police officer for fifteen (15) years and I've never experienced the volume of sudden deaths that have come in such a short period of time".

He said people were arriving at relatives' homes and finding them deceased.
