The 2018 North American heat wave is an ongoing heat wave in some parts of North America and has passed in others. At least 70 deaths in Quebec were heat-related.[1] Eighteen states between Michigan and New Mexico issued heat advisories to over 60 million people.[2]

Quebec[edit | edit source]

As of July 10, 70 people, mostly already ill, died of heat-related deaths in Quebec.[3]

California[edit | edit source]

On July 6, temperatures in southern California went over 110 Fahrenheit (43° C). [4] At 3:55pm PDT, Beverly Hills' temperature reached 119 degrees F (48° C). [5] Santa Ana hit 114 degrees F (46° C), a record high.[4] In Ramona, it was 117 degrees F (47° C), a record high.[4]

The heat and dryness exacerbated conditions fueling wildfires, which have caused one fatality and hundreds of evacuations.[6][7]

On July 7, 34,500 Los Angeles Department of Water and Power customers (2.5% of its base) experienced power outage, some for up to 24 hours. The day prior, peak energy demand set a new record for any July day in the city, at 6,256 megawatts.[8][7]

Colorado[edit | edit source]

The temperature in Denver, Colorado on June 28 tied the city's record at 105 degrees Fahrenheit (41° C).[9]
