Post-tropical cyclone Dorian made its trek across central Nova Scotia, passed the St. Lawrence Gulf, and is continuing to weaken as it tracks away from Atlantic Canada. During the early hours of Monday morning Dorian will be offshore east of Labrador.

The Maritimes saw over 500,000 power outages, with almost 400,000 cases in Nova Scotia at its peak over the weekend. While there have been no reported injuries, countless trees were uprooted, and a large construction crane collapsed into a building in downtown Halifax.
