Montreal health officials say 11 people have died since the intense heat set in over the weekend, with health authorities in the Eastern Townships region east of Montreal attributing another four deaths to the sweltering temperatures.

Dr. Mylene Drouin told a news conference today the deaths have been investigated and are linked directly to the heat wave.

Isolated adults, seniors, young children, people experiencing homelessness and people with certain mental health illnesses, chronic illnesses, heart and lung issues or limited mobility are at greater risk of heat-related illnesses. The deaths were not concentrated in any specific municipality.

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