Hurricane Dorian

On the evening of Saturday, September 7, Hurricane Dorian made landfall near Halifax, Nova Scotia. Although downplayed from a Category 2 hurricane to a post-tropical storm with hurricane-strength winds, winds moved in about a 600 km wide swath where its highest intensity was felt in Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and the southeast corner of New Brunswick.

Downing trees and power lines, the storm left damage in its wake leaving over 400,000 homes and businesses in Atlantic Canada without power and cell phone reception. Thousands of trees were uprooted or snapped off by the storm.

“The impact of Hurricane Dorian on communities here in Atlantic Canada has been truly devastating. As municipalities across the region continue to work tirelessly to support recovery efforts and assess the damage, Tree Canada is raising funds to help bring trees and natural beauty back to these areas.”

– Danielle St-Aubin, CEO of Tree Canada
