Citizens of Canada are suffering from a heat wave and are trying to take advantage of the facilities available to cool their bodies.

Canada recorded the highest temperature in its history, coinciding with an unprecedented heat wave that hit the northwestern regions of the United States.

Officials said the temperature in Leighton, British Columbia, rose to 46.6 degrees Celsius on Sunday, breaking a record set 84 years ago.

Both the United States and Canada warned citizens of “dangerous” heat levels that could continue this week.

Experts say that climate change is expected to increase the frequency of unprecedented weather conditions, such as heat waves.
