The City of Toronto has upgraded its heat alert as Toronto and most of the province begin a second day of hot, humid weather.
Medical Officer of Health Dr. David McKeown has made it an Extreme Heat Alert. That means the City is opening up cooling centres for those without air conditioning. They’re located at the Metro Hall, East York Civic Centre, North York Civic Centre, Driftwood Community Centre, Etobicoke Olympium, McGregor Community Centre, and Centennial Park Community Centre.
Water and snacks will be made available.
McKeown also advises us to check on elderly neighbours and family, and those with compromised health, to make sure they’re coping.
