Record temperature in Canada, almost 500 deaths in 5 days

About 500 people lost their lives in Canada's western provinces in five days. The temperature is rising in that province of the country. Therefore, there is increasing concern about elderly people. Aljazeera reported this information citing local authorities.

Canada's British Columbia Chief 'Coroner' Lisa Lapointe said on Wednesday that the BC (British Columbia) Coroners Service received reports of 486 deaths from Friday to Wednesday afternoon. He expressed fear that this number of deaths will increase.

In a statement, Lisa Lapointe said the BC Coroner's Service has received an unprecedented number of deaths in British Columbia over the past five days. However, it is not possible to say for sure how many of them died due to heatstroke. Although it is believed that the severe weather in British Columbia is responsible for the significant increase in the death toll.

Temperatures have risen dramatically recently in western areas, including British Columbia. This is attributed to the so-called 'heat dome' (climate enclosed in warm air). However, experts also believe that global climate change is behind the sudden increase in temperature.

Climate change plays a major role in record breaking temperatures. The highest temperature was recorded in Litton, a central city in British Columbia, Canada. A temperature of 49.6 Celsius (121.24 Fahrenheit) was recorded there on Thursday.

"We've never seen anything like this before," Vancouver Police Sergeant Steve Addison said in a statement. We are shocked in such a situation.
