Tropical Storm Kyle is brewing in the Atlantic Ocean, west of Bermuda, and is expected to become a hurricane shortly.

The Canadian Hurricane Centre issued a dire warning today – the storm expected to weaken somewhat by the time it reaches the Maritimes – could give Saint John a direct hit with drenching rain and winds.

Saint John already had to deal with heavy rain and flooding from Hanna earlier this month.

To add insult to injury, before Kyle arrives, another unrelated system is bringing heavy rain to the Maritimes just ahead of the tropical storm.
