Hurricane Earl hits Nova Scotia

Thousands of homes in Atlantic Canada still without power in wake of storm

Atlantic Canadians are cleaning up after Hurricane Earl hit the maritimes on Saturdays. The hurricane hit Lunenburg County in Nova Scotia on Saturday, knocking out power to more than 200,000 customers in the province. Tens of thousands remain without power on Sunday. One man drowned in Blind Bay during the storm and a Nova Scotia Power employee was injured when he became entangled in live wires. Earl has since been downgraded to a post-tropical storm as it moves into the cold waters of the North Atlantic.
