Couillard noted that the weather is expected to cool down by Friday but "we expect to have this kind of episode every year".

Eleven people have died in the city as a result of the heat, according to a Quebec public health official.

If the temperature in fact hits 33 degrees on Wednesday, it would set a new record for Sudbury. Temperatures in Canada's largest city have topped 30 degrees every day since Friday.

During the extended heat warning, people are encouraged to visit family, friends and neighbours, especially isolated adults and seniors, to make sure they are cool and drinking plenty of fluids. The last one was in 2011 at eight days.

But relief is coming, however slowly. Daytime high temperatures near 30 degrees are forecast, with humidex values in the mid to high thirties. Friday is forecast to be 28 C with a 40 per cent chance of showers.

LeBron in Free Agency: Where Will the King go Next?
And ESPN is reporting the Cleveland Cavaliers won't meet in person with LeBron James or his representatives once it does. If the Lakers can't land Leonard, their current roster as it stands isn't enough to compete for a championship.

Drouin says the victims fit the profile of people authorities describe as at risk: those with chronic illness or mental-health problems, people who live alone and people without air conditioning at home.

"There are still two days left of particularly hot weather with particularly high humidex levels", Genereux said.

Extreme heat affects everyone, Environment Canada said.

Even those not specifically at risk are encouraged to stay inside or in the shade, and to limit outdoor activity in the heat.

The Salvation Army was out at Gore Park handing out bottles of water reminding people to heed the warnings and protect themselves, and police have already received a number of calls including one on Appleby Line and Upper Middle Road in Burlington where they rescued a dog from a hot auto where the temperature was 66 degrees.
