Sudbury –

Environment Canada has issued heat warnings for communities in northern Ontario that stretch from the Manitoba borders to the Quebec borders north of Highway 11.

Hot and humid conditions will continue through Wednesday with temperatures reaching up to 41 C with the Humidex.

“Hot and humid air can also cause deterioration of air quality and approach the air quality health index of the high risk category,” the country’s weather service said on Monday. “Watch for the effects of heat-related illnesses: swelling, rash, cramps, fainting, heat exhaustion, heat stroke, and worsening of certain health problems.”

It is recommended that you continue to drink water even if you are not thirsty, stay in a cool place, and schedule outdoor activities during the cooler times of the day when possible.
