This is very unusual.
As the hot and sultry summer continues, there will certainly be more records, says Campbell.

"My concern about Atlantic Canada is that residents in history have not suffered from extreme heat," Feltmate wrote . " Feltmate recently hosted a federal advisory group on climate change.
"We have to convince people to be prepared for a heat wave that hasn't been seen in history, but because of climate change, the heat wave will definitely come.
"People should consider building houses with air conditioning, building more cooling centers in the community, and implementing emergency systems during the heat wave to check vulnerable people, he said.
