Portland is not built for heatwaves. In a city that statistically rains more than Seattle (it's true, look it up), Portland is the type of town that doesn't need AC units in people's homes and does need sprinklers based on its climate.

Or, at least it was.

As Portland average temperature keeps raising and the record deaths just by heat in recent years, it's become a reality to many who would have never thought possible.

According to Axios, they had 69 deaths due to heat in Multnomah County. That's far more than there ever should be.

Axios did some research and came up with a map that shows the most dangerous parts of Portland when it comes to heat, especially looking into this summer.

See the map on the Axios website.

Looking at the map, it seems like there are more hotter areas in east Portland compared to the westside across from the bridge, but there are still several spots in western Portland that you'll need to be cautious of.

Although heat deaths are down from previous years, heat continues to rise with record temperature numbers always at risk.

There are also dedicacted shelters with climate controlled cooling so if you are without AC and are in need of comfort, there are locations you may visit.
