Storm Dorian made its way to Nova Scotia over the weekend after being downgraded to a post-tropical cyclone.
The still-powerful storm rocked the Canadian province with 100 mph winds, knocking out power to over 450,000 homes and toppling trees.
Meteorologists reported winds of 80 mph Sunday morning as a “very intense post-tropical cyclone,” according to the Canadian Hurricane Center.
Four inches of rain had fallen in Nova Scotia, with that number expected to double by Sunday afternoon, officials said, with northern Newfoundland and eastern Labrador also due to be in the storm’s path.
Similar to the situation as the now-storm rolled through the U.S., residents along the coast were asked to evacuate some areas.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he’s keeping a close eye on the situation.
“The safety of Canadians is our number one priority and weâre ready to help Atlantic Canada through this storm,” the PM tweeted.
