Flooding was reported on some roads in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. Local authorities are asking drivers not to venture there.


The winter storm that hit the Maritimes on Saturday caused power outages in some thousands of homes. However, the bad weather hit less hard than expected.

Environment Canada has lifted its strong wind warnings in effect in all three provinces as well as its storm surge alerts in coastal areas.

More than 3,600 Nova Scotia Power customers were without power at the peak of the outages Sunday, around 8 a.m. The largest outage was reported in Middle Musquodoboit, where 1,600 customers were left without power due to high winds.

New Brunswick recorded a total of 1,200 outages at the same time, including 800 in the Oromocto region.

In Prince Edward Island, Maritime Electric reported 300 customers without power early in the morning.

Around 11 a.m., electricity suppliers in the three provinces continued to work to restore power. There were a total of 1,067 outages in Nova Scotia, 928 in New Brunswick and 18 in Prince Edward Island.

The weather also disrupted the schedule of some Atlantic ferry services.

Bay Ferries suspended ferry service between Saint John, New Brunswick and Digby, Nova Scotia for the entire day on Sunday.

The ferry scheduled to leave Saint John at 9 a.m. Monday is also canceled. Bay Ferries is expected to resume operations in time for the 4 p.m. departure from Digby.

Marine Atlantic expects delays to its ferry service between Newfoundland and Nova Scotia on Sunday. Those with reservations will be notified of new departure times.

Saturday departures from North Sydney at 11 15:15 a.m. and Port aux Basques at 11:30 a.m. have been canceled.
