Montrealers brace for a week of dangerously hot weather

Gloria Enriquez is out at PAC de Royal in the Ville Marie borough. Gloria, we can hear and see the kids behind you. How are things feeling out there? Aaliyah, there is no other way to say this. It is hot out here. And so you mentioned the kids and they are out here. They've been coming in and out of the park all day trying to cool down, enjoying the splash pad. And really, Environment Canada says this is just the beginning of this heat wave. They say that we can expect temperatures to continue rising over the next three days and we could even be breaking a record in the middle of the week. Humidx values of up to 43 in some areas of Quebec, including Montreal. So one thing is for sure, it is going to be very warm and very humid until Friday. And city officials say they are prepared to face the next few days of intense heat. By this point, the city already open more than 25 swimming pool. Those are outside swimming pool. There's 40 inside swimming pool being open. We also deployed some Miss station to help people to cool down themselves. Despite this nice stretch of heat, the city says it is not hot enough to trigger their heat extreme heat protocols, which would add more measures such as knocking on doors to check in on people. They say they remain vigilant and they're urging people to stay hydrated and to go in a shaded and cool place every two hours. Back to you, Alia. All right, some great tips there. Thank you so much for that, Gloria. That's our Gloria Enriquez reporting for us tonight.
