Tropical storm warning (Posted 12am Sept 15 2023)

Environment Canada Release:

12:02 AM ADT Friday 15 September 2023

Tropical storm force winds of 70 gusting to 100 km/h over exposed areas from Hurricane Lee can be expected over the above regions. Tropical storm conditions expected to begin early Saturday morning.

Corresponding wind, rainfall, and storm surge warnings will be issued for affected areas later today. These winds could break tree branches potentially resulting in downed utility lines. Secure loose objects on your property and anticipate power interruptions. Stay away from the shore – the combination of surge and large waves could result in dangerous rip currents and the risk of being pulled out to sea.

By nature, a tropical storm also implies the threat of local flooding from heavy rainfall – consult your local area forecast for possible rainfall warnings. Please continue to monitor alerts issued by the Canadian Hurricane Centre and forecasts issued by Environment Canada.

Reports of storm conditions and impacts can be emailed directly to or by tweeting reports by province using #NSStorm, #NBStorm, #PEStorm, #NLwx, #QCStorm or #ONStorm.
