This week’s heatwave comes a year after last summer’s dangerously high temperatures resulted in the deaths of 66 people across the province, from June 30 to July 8.

During extended periods of heat, locals are urged to drink plenty of water, keep cool, stay out of the sun, and check up on vulnerable citizens.
