Atlantic Canadians brace for dangerous Hurricane Fiona

Hurricane Fiona is on a collision course with Atlantic Canada after devastating Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic earlier this week.

The storm is expected to make landfall late Friday night into Saturday, bringing strong winds and rain, as well as possible flooding and power outages across much of the region.

The heaviest damage is likely to be felt in Nova Scotia, where the storm hits right away — but because the storm is so massive, dangerous weather is also forecast for parts of Newfoundland, Labrador, Quebec, Ontario, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island.

The Canadian Hurricane Center has warned that this could be a “historic storm” and a “landmark weather event” as the powerful storm makes its way into the region.

Fiona has already become the most devastating hurricane of the year in the Atlantic so far after flooding and damaging winds left millions without running water or electricity in Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic.

These kinds of extreme storms are only becoming more common as the climate crisis deepens and ocean temperatures rise, creating increasingly powerful hurricanes that can wreak havoc if they reach land.
