Widespread impacts were being felt across Atlantic Canada hours before Post-Tropical Cyclone Dorian made landfall near Sambro Creek, about 25 kilometres south of Halifax, Nova Scotia, on Saturday.
Powerful wind gusts exceeding 100 km/h and heavy rainfall were reaching areas that were hundreds of kilometres away from the eye of the storm ahead of landfall, and as of 7 p.m. EST on Saturday, nearly half-a-million customers in the Maritimes were without power.
The estimated maximum sustained winds at landfall were 155 km/h, with a central pressure of 958 mb, according to the National Hurricane Center. During the early hours of Monday morning Dorian will be offshore east of Labrador.
Below is a look at some of the damage Dorian brought to Atlantic Canada on Saturday.
