A heat warning is in effect and we’re being urged to take precautions today.

Environment Canada warns that this could especially affect young children, pregnant women, older adults, people with chronic illnesses and people working or exercising outdoors.

They say to seek a cool place such as a tree-shaded area, swimming pool, shower or bath, or air-conditioned spot like a public building.

Heat warnings are issued when very high temperature or humidity conditions are expected to pose an elevated risk of heat illnesses, such as heat stroke or heat exhaustion.
