EMO and Earl

The Regional Emergency Management Co-ordinator for Lunenburg County, the Municipality of the District of Chester, the Town of Bridgewater and Mahone Bay says its Earl created a busy afternoon.

However, Heather MacKenzie-Carey says it appears the area has escaped any really serious damage from the storm.

"We've certainly had some pretty strong winds and heavy rain. We have a number of power outages and some trees down on the line... From an EMO point of view, we've had no requests from first responders," says MacKenzie-Carey.

The R-C-M-P have closed the road to Peggy's Cove to keep curious storm-watchers away from the dangerous, pounding surf.

There were also numerous flight cancellations at airports all across the Maritimes.
