There’s a heat warning out for Coastal British Columbia, which includes Bowen Island.
The past few days have seen some temperatures rising above 25 degrees, and Environment Canada is warning people, especially “young children, pregnant women, older adults, people with chronic illnesses and people working or exercising outdoors,” to be careful.
“The summertime heat continues over much of the inner-south Coast early this week. Inland areas can will experience day-time highs of at least 28 degrees and overnight lows near 16 degrees,” it says.
The warning on its website continues, “Some slightly cooler weather is in store beginning mid-week as an on-shore flow develops.
“Watch for the effects of heat illness: swelling, rash, cramps, fainting, heat exhaustion, heat stroke and the worsening of some health conditions.
“Drink plenty of water even before you feel thirsty and stay in a cool place.
“Check on older family, friends and neighbours. Make sure they are cool and drinking water
Never leave people or pets inside a parked vehicle.”
