Dorian hits Canada's Atlantic coast, knocks out power, downs a crane

	 		Hurricane watch in parts of Atlantic Canada as Dorian moves up U.S. east coast				Sep 08 2019

Late on Sunday night the Canadian Hurricane Center discontinued warnings for Dorian after it headed into the sea, while 60mph gusts still buffeted the coast of Newfoundland and Labrador. AT, fallen trees and power lines remained on roads, leaving more than 105,000 Nova Scotia Power customers in the dark.

Some residents of New Brunswick, Newfoundland, and Prince Edward Island have also found themselves without power.

Schools were closed for the day throughout the province while the cleanup continues all Nova Scotia public schools are closed today.

On Prince Edward Island, Maritime Electric said efforts to restore power were slow-going.

As what is left of Dorian continues to move further away from Canadian waters and get absorbed by a larger low pressure system Tuesday, the lives of residents in Atlantic Canada are beginning to return to normalcy as recovery efforts are well underway.

Hurricane Dorian brought wind, rain and large seas that knocked out ability throughout the region.

Public schools across Nova Scotia were closed Monday and will remain closed Tuesday. Powerful winds and rain caused property damage across the province, in one instance even toppling a construction crane in downtown Halifax.

As of 8 p.m., Novia Scotia Power said 348,880 customers had lost electricity across Nova Scotia, reports CNN affiliate CBC.

Typhoon Lingling also caused major damage in South Korea, with the storm making landfall on the country's east coast earlier on Saturday.

In New Brunswick, more than 80,000 homes and businesses were without electricity at the peak of the storm on Saturday.

Meanwhile, many marinas around the Maritimes were left battered by Dorian's storm surges.

Almost all of Newfoundland experienced powerful winds Saturday night ahead of Dorian, with the strongest gusts reported over southwestern and western parts of the island.

Neither storm is predicted at this time to reach land, but the hurricane center is monitoring them as they move and develop.

Hurricane Dorian first appeared in the Atlantic on August 26 and islands in the eastern Caribbean went on alert as the storm strengthened.

There are now three potential tropical storms developing in the Atlantic, and one of them could bring heavy rain to South Florida by the weekend.

The storm, which is moving at northeast at around 25 miles per hour (40 kph), is expected to produce hurricane conditions in parts of the Canadian province later Saturday.
