Fiona makes landfall, slams Canada's coast with severe winds and heavy rain

Updated: Jun 12, 2023

Hurricane Fiona, now referred to as a post-tropical cyclone, has made landfall in Nova Scotia, racing through Canada's Atlantic seaboard early Saturday in what could be a "landmark" weather event for the country. An unofficial barometric pressure of 931.6 mb was recorded at Hart Island, which would make Fiona the lowest pressure land-falling storm on record in Canada, according to the Canadian Hurricane Centre. Wind observations on Beaver Island in eastern Nova Scotia were recorded at 94 mph. Parts of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island started to feel the storm's arrival Saturday morning as winds and rains extending far from the storm's center knocked out utilities. More than 376,000 customers across Nova Scotia have lost power so far, according to the region's power outage center.
