I get symptoms of "heavy sweating, weakness, weak pulse, fainting, vomiting, and cold, pale, clammy skin" just trying to figure out how Public Health can get away with such an ineffectual extreme heat policy.
I put in a request this morning to find out if we can expect an actual Heat Alert today as from my rudimentary calcualations today (Friday the 3rd) would be the fourth day in a row in which the humidex would be above 40 - thereby triggering ...wait for it... "A Meeting" - but also an acutal Heat Alert and the possibility of opening cooling centres.
Toronto has had cooling centres open all week with lower temperatures.
The response just in from Public Health: they expect temperatures to break today and will "monitor the situation" - don't expect them to call a Heat Alert.
