Hurricane season not over yet

2010 Hurricane season to date (TWN)

The 2010 hurricane season still has a little over a month to go before it is officially over – ending November 30 – and forecasters say more action is yet to come.

Two major hurricanes, Earl and Igor, both had a devastating impact on Atlantic Canada.

Hurricane Earl slammed into SW Nova Scotia on September 4, bringing powerful winds, heavy rain and knocking down hundreds of trees leaving thousands without power.

On September 21, a massive hurricane named Igor sideswiped Newfoundland, bringing unprecedented damage to the province.

Roads were swept away, entire communities flooded and thousands had no electricity for days.
