Rafael brushes past Newfoundland

Rafael was downgraded from a hurricane to a post-tropical storm as it moved into the North Atlantic past eastern Newfoundland this morning.

The Canadian Hurricane Centre says rainfall was not really a factor for the island with only 6 mm reported at Cape Race.

A powerful storm surge did affect the southern Avalon Peninsula with waves crashing through a breakwater in Trepassey but there were no reports of injuries.
