Canada soldiers helping to remove fallen trees after Dorian

Dorian hits Canada's Atlantic coast knocks out power downs a crane

Nova Scotia Power Inc. chief executive Karen Hutt said over 400,000 Nova Scotia Power customers lost power at the peak of the storm and 50,000 had since been restored. And the huge amount of tangled debris littering streets is now making the work of utility crews that much harder.

Massive outages affecting tens of thousands are also reported in New Brunswick, PEI and Newfoundland and Labrador, but the worst hit appears to be Nova Scotia, where more than 200,000 customers are still in the dark.

Nearly 200,000 properties and businesses ended up still without energy in Nova Scotia Monday afternoon right after a peak of about 400,000 ended up out Saturday.

Power crews from Quebec, Ontario, Florida and ME have been called in to help.

South Florida's weather may be affected by the end of the week by that system; "high pressure" and easterly winds mean an increase in moisture, said Larry Kelly, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Miami. "There's a lot of people who are suffering from this storm, but I think the work that's been done by so many people in really commendable".

According to the local authorities, close to a thousand Canadian soldiers will be assigned the task of clearing roads, evacuating residents trapped in flooded areas, and help in the restoration of electricity.

The agency said it was setting up shelters or temporary housing for the newly homeless across the islands and appealed for Bahamians to take in storm victims. "There'll be plenty of time for you to come down and get your coffee".

Emergency management officials urged drivers to stay off the roads after snaking drive-thru lines at some of the few open fast-food restaurants impeded the path of emergency vehicles on Sunday.

Halifax is the capital of the Canadian province of Nova Scotia.

Hutt asked those without power to be patient, saying she understood many people were frustrated by the company's inability to promise specific fix deadlines.
