Canadian Prepper released a troubling video that covers the news over the weeks in terms of the heatwave that has affected crops.
The extreme drought has already forced some Utah farmers to walk away from crops in thirsty fields just to get through a very dry year. This is by far the worst growing season many farmers said they have ever seen. Giving up on dry crops has cost some farmers a lot of money.
In March, Gov. Spencer Cox issued an executive order declaring a state of emergency due to ongoing drought conditions in Utah. The order, which went into effect immediately, allows counties and cities to begin the process of implementing water restriction plans for the irrigation season and encourages all Utah residents to reduce indoor water waste by consuming less and fixing any “irrigation inefficiencies.” A little more than 80% of all water consumption in Utah goes toward agriculture, the state reported in 2019.
Temperatures in parts of B.C.’s Interior are forecast to be close to 40 degrees this week, just weeks after the province sweltered through a record-breaking heat wave according to CTV News.
According to Environment Canada, Kamloops is expected to reach 38 degrees on Tuesday, and highs of 37 are predicted for Kelowna.
On Saturday, meteorologist Doug Lundquist told CTV News Environment Canada was “close to issuing another heat warning” for some areas. On Sunday, the weather agency did issue heat warnings for the Fraser Canyon, Cariboo, 100 Mile and South Thompson regions.
Global News reports that dozens of heat records were broken during the heat dome’s initial bombardment in Western Canada in late June, with over 60 records set on a single day alone in B.C.
The small British Columbian community of Lytton, which suffered from a catastrophic wildfire last week, set Canada’s hottest temperature record several times during the heatwave — up to a blistering 49.6 C.
