Hurricane Larry downed trees and caused power outages in the Canadian province of Newfoundland overnight into September 11, Canadian media reported.

Larry made landfall on Newfoundland’s western Avalon Peninsula around 1.30 am Saturday, Environment Canada said. Preliminary reports found Mount Pearl received 35.1 mL (approximately 2.1 in) of rain.
