A high-pressure ridge trapping warm air in the region has been blamed for the searing heat extending from the US state of Oregon to Canada's Arctic regions.
"At 4:20pm, Lytton Climate Station reported 49.5°C, once again, breaking the daily and all-time temperature records for the 3rd straight day," Canada's Environment and Climate Change announced a temperature of 121 degrees Fahrenheit on Twitter.
For third time today, Canada's meteorological office reported a record high temperature in the town of Lytton, British Columbia, as a deadly heat wave engulfed the country's west and the US Pacific Northwest. As per data given by the Vancouver police department and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, at least 134 people have died in the Vancouver region since Friday, according to AFP.
Since Friday, the Vancouver Police Department has reacted to over 65 unexpected fatalities, the great majority of which were "due to the heat," according to the department. "Vancouver has never experienced heat like this, and sadly dozens of people are dying because of it," police sergeant Steve Addison said.
Other local governments have confirmed that they, too, have replied to a large number of unexpected death calls, but have yet to provide tolls.
