Weakened Lee Makes Landfall in Nova Scotia

It downed trees and knocked out power

The Lee storm system made landfall in a far western part of Canada's Nova Scotia province on Saturday, packing hurricane-force winds that knocked out power lines and downed trees.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said in its latest update that Lee made landfall on Long Island, a small island southwest of Halifax, with estimated maximum sustained winds of 70 mph (110 km/h).

Strong winds, coastal flooding and heavy rains were occurring in parts of New England and Atlantic Canada, the NHC said earlier on Saturday.
