Hurricane Fiona made landfall in eastern Nova Scotia on Saturday as a post-tropical storm with 90 mph winds. Although the storm weakened as it approached land, it still caused an unprecedented amount of damage and at least one death. The worst damage was in Prince Edward Island, where storm surge reached up to six feet.
After months of quiet, the Atlantic Basin is looking particularly active this week. Tropical Storm Ian formed Friday and is expected to strengthen as it approaches the United States. Ian may hit Cuba as a Category 4 and the western coast of Florida will be particularly at risk.
“The one thing I have to stress is that as Ian moves into the Gulf of Mexico the wind field is going to expand considerably,” said Jamie Rhome, acting director of the National Hurricane Center, in a briefing on Sunday. “Ian is going to be a large and powerful hurricane in the eastern Gulf of Mexico and spread its impacts over a large portion of the Florida peninsula, so don’t get too fixated on the [exact track].”
