Hurricane Dorian has left a path of destruction across the Maritime Provinces despite being downgraded as it crossed the region.
The Canadian Hurricane Centre says Dorian was an intense post-tropical storm as it made landfall at 7:15pm ADT Saturday in Sambro, 25 km southwest of Halifax.
Dorian brought destructive winds, flooding rains and powerful storm surges to much of Nova Scotia, southern New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island.
A construction crane collapsed and century old trees toppled onto homes, businesses, vehicles and streets in Halifax.
Public works staff are scrambling to clean up the mess and power crews are trying to restore electricity to the tens of thousands without it.
