Hamilton's public health department raised the city's heat status to a Heat Warning (stage 2), meaning two or more days with a Humidex of 40 or higher.
As part of the city's response, all "Cool Places" will be operating, including the Career Development Centre at 181 Main Street West, the Employment Resource Centre at 2250 Barton Street East, and the Employment Resource Centre at 1550 Upper James Street.
In addition, the Salvation Army will be distributing bottled water at Gore Park between 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM today.
