The storm had been moving as a major hurricane over the Atlantic Ocean for more than a week, briefly threatening Bermuda but causing no damage to people on land.

Lee made landfall on Long Island, a small island southwest of Halifax, Nova Scotia, with sustained winds of 70 miles per hour. The storm also brought heavy rain and high tides, causing widespread flooding along the coast.

In Nova Scotia, about 120,000 people lost power on Saturday after fallen trees knocked down power lines. In neighboring New Brunswick, about 20,000 people were without power.

Lee also caused significant damage to property in both provinces. Many homes and businesses were flooded, and some were even destroyed by falling trees.

One death has been reported so far in connection with the storm. A motorcyclist was killed in Maine when a tree fell on his bike.

Authorities are still assessing the full extent of the damage caused by Lee. However, it is clear that the storm has had a significant impact on the Canadian Atlantic region.

The following are some additional details about the storm and its impact:

Strong winds: Lee brought strong winds to both Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. Gusts of up to 100 miles per hour were recorded in some areas. The strong winds caused widespread damage to trees and power lines.


Flooding: Lee also brought heavy rain and high tides, causing widespread flooding along the coast. Many homes and businesses were flooded, and some were even destroyed by the rising water.


Power outages: As of Sunday morning, about 100,000 people in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick were still without power. Crews are working to restore power, but it could be several days before everyone is back online.


Transportation disruptions: Lee caused significant transportation disruptions in both provinces. Many roads were closed due to flooding and downed trees. Ferry service between Nova Scotia and New Brunswick was also suspended.


Authorities are urging residents in the affected areas to remain vigilant and to follow the advice of local officials. Residents should also be prepared for power outages and other disruptions.
