Several heat warnings have been issued for southern Manitoba, indicating that temperatures could reach the upper 30s for certain residents.
Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) has issued advisories for sections of southern Manitoba, such as Winnipeg, where temperatures will be in the low to mid-30s, according to the ECCC. As per the warnings, the heat is predicted to linger through Monday.
“Temperatures in southern Manitoba will be in the low to mid-30s for another few days, with humidex values rising into the low 40s Sunday afternoon,” according to the alert.
“Due to Manitobans’ acclimatization to a cool and rainy spring, the risk of heat-related injuries including such heat exhaustion as well as heat stroke may be increased.”
The province of Manitoba has also published a heat advisory warning that prolonged heat exposure might result in death if the body temperature rises above 40 degrees Celsius.
The ECCC cautioned Manitobans to plan outdoor activities during the cooler periods of the day, stay out of direct sunlight, and drink lots of water because excessive heat can damage anyone.
According to the report, people should be aware of the indicators of heat stroke, which include a headache, hot skin, dizziness, and confusion. Action must be done if someone is suffering from heat stroke, according to the province.
Call 911 if you or someone you’re with gets unconscious, confused, or feels dry and overheated. “This could be heat stroke, which would be a medical emergency,” the province’s alert adds.
“Cool the person right away while waiting for emergency medical aid by transferring them to a cool or shaded area, using cold water to large portions of the skin or clothing, as well as fan the person as much as possible.”
