Municipality urges residents to stay off roads

The Halifax Regional Municipality is urging residents to stay off the roads due to impacts from Hurricane Dorian.

Forecasts indicate that wind speeds will be increasing significantly over the next few hours, potentially exceeding maximum speeds experienced earlier in the day. ​

Until advised otherwise, residents should not be travelling on the roads or sidewalks unless it is an emergency. ​ There are significant hazards to public safety, including downed trees and power lines, debris, and pooled water.

By early morning, municipal crews will be assessing and addressing the impacts and hazards created by the storm. It is critical that motorists and pedestrians do not place themselves in harm’s way or create a challenge for first responders and clean-up crews as they attempt to do their work..
