Hurricane Teddy

Hurricane Teddy is expected to reach Atlantic Canada as a post-tropical storm on Wednesday morning and will most likely have decreased wind speeds compared to Hurricane Dorian in 2019. 

Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island should expect surge levels in addition to flash flooding due to intense rainfall. Current estimates are between 3-5 meters of surge for Prince Edward Island and 3-9 meters for Nova Scotia.  Parts of Newfound and Labrador are also expected to receive rainfall of 50mm-100mm.
