Environemnt Canada is reporting that Estevan is in the middle of a heat warning.

That comes as humidex values are expected to reach 35 for the next 3 days. Daytime highs of 32 degrees and higher and overnight lows near 16 degrees are also expected over the next several days.

Environment Canada reminds people that heat affects everyone, though risks are greater for young children, pregnant women, older adults, people with chronic illnesses, and people working or exercising outdoors.

They advise people to drink plenty of water even before you feel thirsty and stay in a cool place.

Check on older family, friends, and neighbors. Make sure they are cool and drinking water, and never leave people or pets inside a parked vehicle.

People should watch for the symptoms of heat illness: dizziness/fainting; nausea/vomiting; rapid breathing and heartbeat; extreme thirst; decreased urination with unusually dark urine.

Heat warnings are issued when very high temperature or humidity conditions are expected to pose an elevated risk of heat illnesses, such as heat stroke or heat exhaustion.
