Lee makes landfall in Canada with winds of 70 miles per hour

BAR HARBOR, Maine — Atlantic storm Lee made landfall at near-hurricane power Saturday in Nova Scotia, Canada, after bringing harmful winds, tough surf and torrential rains to a big swath of New England and Maritime Canada that toppled timber, swamped coastlines and lower energy to tens of hundreds. One particular person was killed in Maine when a tree limb fell on his car.

With sustained winds of 70 mph (110 kph), the middle of the post-tropical cyclone got here ashore about 135 miles (215 kilometers) west of Halifax, the capital of Nova Scotia, in accordance with the U.S. Nationwide Hurricane Middle. That’s about 50 miles (80 kilometers) southeast of Eastport, Maine.

The storm was anticipated to weaken because it moved into New Brunswick and the Gulf of St. Lawrence.
