Hurricane Fiona remains on track to bring severe weather to NL


As of this morning, Hurricane Fiona remains on a collision course with Atlantic Canada.


The storm will be large and will impact a large swath of the area bringing heavy rain, strong winds, and storm surge.


Based on its current track it looks like Fiona will make landfall as a hurricane somewhere near Cape Breton Island.


The storm could have a profound impact on western and southern Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, portions of eastern New Brunswick, eastern Quebec, and all of Labrador.


Conditions will deteriorate on Friday and will continue through Friday night, Saturday, and Saturday night.


While it remains too early to provide specific amounts of rain and wind, winds could reach gusts to 150 km/h over some areas.


Fiona has the potential to cause significant travel disruptions, prolonged power outages, wind damage, and flooding.


You should secure loose objects outside your home, clean up any debris, make sure the storm drains near your home are clear, and stock up your emergency kit.
