Storm Dorian makes landfall in Nova Scotia, Canada

Hope the Trailer Park Boys are alright. Will we be getting a sequel to that episode where their trailer washed out into the ocean?

It would be fairly weird if the storm is still a hurricane by the time it gets up there. That is some cold water along that coast and it should kill the storm before it gets too close.

Didn't it get downgraded to a category 1 storm already after it left Florida?

Dorian made landfall near Halifax, Nova Scotia earlier this evening as a category 2 hurricane. Though quickly weakening thereafter, 340,000 people are currently without power. Trees have come down atop parked vehicles, storm surge has flooded coastal areas, and a construction crane collapsed on top of a building. I'm on the east coast of Newfoundland, and we are getting some heavy rainfall and strong gusts right now. Nothing damaging, but still one of the more energetic storms we've seen here in a good long while.

Headline is misleading; it's just a storm now, not a hurricane.
