Canada has recorded its highest ever temperature as the nations west is hit by an unprecedented heatwave.
Temperatures in Lytton in British Columbia soared to 46.6 degrees Celsius.
This has overtaken an 84-year-old record for the country.
The Unites States and Canada have warned citizens of the dangerous heat levels, urging them to protect themselves.
The reason for the heatwave is a ‘heat dome’, which is ultimately static high pressure acting like a lid on a cooking pot.
“I like to break a record, but this is like shattering and pulverising them. It’s warmer in parts of western Canada than in Dubai,” Environment Canada senior climatologist David Phillips said.
The extreme weather is expected to continue through the week.
