Heat warning continues

Environment Canada continues its heat warning as hot and humid weather experienced over the long weekend is expected to continue today and tomorrow.

Maximum temperatures are expected to be near 30 degrees C with humidex values expected to reach near 40. Cooler temperatures and relief from humidity are possible on Thursday.

Hastings Prince Edward Public Health advises residents to watch for symptoms of heat exhaustion, which include skin rash, muscle cramps, swelling of hands, feet and ankles, heavy sweating, dizziness, headache or fainting, nausea or vomiting, rapid breathing and heartbeat, extreme thirst, and decreased urination with unusually dark yellow urine.

If you experience any of these symptoms during a heat event, immediately move to a cool place and drink non-alcoholic, decaffeinated liquids. Water is the best liquid to drink. During hot weather, make efforts to check in with neighbours, friends, and older family members frequently, especially those at higher risk, to make sure that they are cool and hydrated.
