Canadian Seas Already Rough as Hurricane Fiona Moves in on Bermuda

Hurricane Fiona created rough seas in the Atlantic Ocean off Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, on Thursday, September 22, according to social media posts.

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) reported that the storm is expected to bring “hurricane conditions” to Bermuda on Thursday night through Friday morning, and affect the Canadian Atlantic coast over the weekend.

Video posted by @onenashsab, which they said was filmed on the Atlantic Ocean off Newfoundland and Labrador on Thursday, shows choppy waves splashing over a ship. The poster said the ship was “trying to beat” Hurricane Fiona’s arrival on a voyage from Hopedale to St John’s.

Large swells from the hurricane would cause “life-threatening surf and rip current conditions” on the east coast of the United States and Canada, according to the NHC. Credit: @onenashsab via Storyful
