A strong Atlantic storm which moved across the Maritimes yesterday hit Nova Scotia the hardest with hurricane-force winds and heavy rain causing localized flooding.

In Great Village near Truro, a river spilled its banks after 50 mm of rain fell in just a few hours flooding homes and businesses.

Many trees and branches came down on Cape Breton Island after winds exceeded 120 km/h.

Greater Moncton felt the storm too with almost 40 mm of rain and a peak wind gust of 63 km/h.
