A heat wave in Quebec has killed almost three dozen, some reports said, as high summer temperatures scorched eastern Canada.

Numerous victims were older than 50, male, living alone and had no air conditioning, said Dr. David Kaiser of Montreal's Regional Public Health Department. Temperatures were in the mid-90s for Montreal on Sunday and Monday, about 20 degrees higher than the normal temperatures this time of year.

Temperatures soared to 93 Fahrenheit with a humidity that made it feel much hotter than that, the meteorological service said.

Twenty-eight of the deaths were in Montreal, said Marie-Claude Lacasse with the Ministry of Health.

The heat-related death toll increased to 34 as temperatures rose as high as 95 F and Environment Canada issued a smog and heat warning for the province, the CBC reported.

Officials are advising people in Quebec to drink plenty of water and to check in on neighbours or relatives and get them to an air-conditioned place, especially elders with medical conditions.

The province of Quebec was hit with highs of 86 F plus temperatures (30 C) beginning June 29 with accompanying humidex levels of between 104 F - 113 F (40 C -45 C).

"We go out to the paramedics, we go out to the hospitals and we ask them to make sure to identify any deaths they believe are related to heat and that allows us to intervene more quickly", Kaiser said.

"We have to remain vigilant and continue to take precautions to avoid health problems", said Charlebois. Of those who died, 18 were in Montreal, Quebec's largest city, CTV News reported.

In 2010, a heat wave killed around 100 people in the Montreal area.
