A heat alert is in effect in Toronto Region including cities of Brampton and Mississauga as the temperature is expected to reach a high of 32 C this afternoon.
Today (Thursday) will be the first of three consecutive above 30 C days in Toronto Region.
During the heat alert, the City of Toronto meanwhile reminded the residents to call or visit family, friends and neighbours, especially isolated adults and seniors who are at greater risk of suffering from heat-related illness, to make sure they are fine.
Other groups at risk include people with chronic and pre-existing illnesses, infants and young children, people on certain medications and those who are marginally housed or homeless.
Air conditioned public places
To beat the heat, residents can visit an air conditioned public place, including shopping malls or one of many local libraries or community centres located in each neighbourhood.
