Info & updates
Strong tropical storm force winds of 80 gusting to 120 km/h over exposed areas with surge of 1.0 to 1.3 m and waves from 7 to 10 m from Hurricane Fiona are expected.
This warning represents the region just outside the severe core of Hurricane / Severe Post-Tropical Fiona. Winds may gust to hurricane-force inland and a bit higher where winds blow onshore. Winds will be cold and from the northwest on the west side of the track between mainland Nova Scotia and Cape Breton and be from the south over western Newfoundland east of the track, and easterly along southern Newfoundland.
Local wind warnings will be issued with additional details and local effects.
This could result in moderate damage to docks and breakwaters. Significant shoreline erosion and wave overwash is expected where winds blow onshore.
A hurricane warning means that hurricane conditions are expected over parts of the region within 24 hours. Hurricane conditions include (A) sustained winds near 120 km/h or more, and/or (B) significantly elevated water levels and dangerous surf along the coast.
By nature, a hurricane also implies the threat of local flooding from heavy rainfall - consult your local area forecast for possible rainfall warnings.
