Hurricane Dorian reached the Maritimes and it’s already caused destruction and mass power outages in Nova Scotia.

The former Category 5 storm is responsible for the deaths of 43 people in the Bahamas and caused devastating damage this week.

At 6:15 pm on Saturday, the storm, – classified as a Category 2 “Pst-Tropical” storm by this time – made landfall about 25 km south of Halifax.

Nova Scotia Power reported outages affecting more than 330,000 customers and the company is reminding the public to stay away from downed wires and poles.

Pictures and videos shared on social media show the powerful winds have caused trees to fall, and debris is now littering the streets.
