Watch – Hurricane “Fiona” causes severe damage along the east coast of Canada

|

Hurricane Fiona caused damage along the eastern coast of Canada with torrential rain and accompanying storm surge. A state of emergency has also been declared in some areas.

The coastal city of Port Obasque in the province of Newfoundland was affected, as was the Labrador region, where many homes were destroyed by strong winds. The police had previously issued instructions to residents to leave the danger zones.

In Nova Scotia, too, the storm toppled roofs and electricity poles, uprooted trees, and flooded streets.

On social media, journalists broadcast footage documenting the extensive damage to public properties and homes after Hurricane Fiona hit the Canadian region of Nova Scotia.

On Saturday evening, Nova Scotia Premier Tim Houston spoke of the “incredible number” of broken trees, and said nearly three-quarters of the population were without electricity.

Houston said it was too early to estimate the extent of the damage.

Fiona made landfall in Nova Scotia early Saturday morning (local time), with winds of 148 kilometers per hour, as announced by the Canadian Hurricane Center.

Hundreds of thousands of people were temporarily without power in Nova Scotia on Saturday morning, according to Nova Scotia Power.

In neighboring Prince Edward County, the local power company also reported that outages affected tens of thousands of homes there.

Fiona passed through the British overseas territory of Bermuda on Friday as a hurricane of the second strongest category.

Last weekend, Fiona made landfall in Puerto Rico as a Category 1 hurricane of 5 degrees, causing flooding and severe damage.
