Most of those who have died were people who lived alone, with chronic or mental illness. Mostly male between the ages of 53-85 and none of them had an air conditioner.

Local officials in Montreal said they are getting 1,200 to 1,350 emergency heat related calls per day since the start of the heat wave.

Where temps have soared to 92-98 degrees with a 110 degree heat index in the city...but outside of the city many have died in temps in the 76-82 degree range

Officials are placing dire warnings for citizens in the area as temps are expected to get up to 86 on Sun and 89 on Monday
