'Widespread Devastation' After Post-Tropical Cyclone Fiona Rips Through Nova Scotia

Debris from damaged trees was strewn across roadways in Cape Brenton and Port Morien, Nova Scotia, on Sunday, September 25, after post-tropical storm Fiona ripped through Canada’s Atlantic coast the previous day.

The Nova Scotia Government opened shelters across the province, asked the Canadian Armed Forces to assist in clean-up and power restoration efforts, and requested federal funding to help municipalities deal with damage incurred by Fiona.
