EARL Update

Environment Canada has advised that Hurricane Earl will likely have an effect on the province beginning Friday evening and through the weekend. A hurricane watch has been issued for Digby, Queens, Shelburne and Yarmouth counties. A tropical storm watch has been issued for Annapolis, Halifax, Hants, Kings, Lunenburg counties, as well as the Fundy side of Colchester and Cumberland counties. As the storm moves closer, its potential impact and strength will become clearer, allowing officials to better assess risk and provide more specific guidance. People are encouraged to have an emergency kit, cash, family contact information and shelter ready. People should also check if they have enough propane on hand to operate a barbecue, that vehicles are fully fuelled and cellphones are charged. Travellers through Halifax Stanfield International Airport should check with airlines for up-to-date information, and monitor fly halifax dot com.
