Hurricane Sandy Canada

October 29, 2012 by  

Hurricane Sandy Canada, A monstrous storm making its way from the U.S. eastern seaboard is still on course to hit Canada Monday night with wet, windy and wild weather. The remnants of Hurricane Sandy are expected to fall over southern Quebec and Ontario, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick by Monday evening, and the severe winds that will accompany the post-tropical storm is causing a concern for forecasters.

A special weather statement issued by Environment Canada Monday warned of damaging winds approaching 100 km/h beginning in the evening.

Forecasters are predicting 20 to 40 millimetres of rain in central and southern Ontario and central Quebec, cautioning that the rain could turn into snow as temperatures dip to the freezing mark.

Rain is not expected to reach the southwestern Maritimes until Tuesday morning, but forecasters say it could continue into Wednesday with more than 50 millimetres of rain expected.

The Canadian Hurricane Centre warns that seven-metre waves could lash the Great Lakes region, especially southern Lake Huron. Large waves are also expected to pound Nova Scotia’s south shore.

Meanwhile, evacuation orders have been issued along the U.S. eastern seaboard as forecasters warned of a storm surges between four to eight metres tall.

Some airports, public-transit systems, financial markets and schools were shut down in New York Monday as Sandy stayed on a course that could see it collide with two other weather systems, creating a superstorm.

The storm has the potential to cause havoc over more than 1,280 kilometres from the East Coast to the Great Lakes and endanger up to 50 million.

As rain began to fall over the northeastern U.S. on Sunday, hundreds of thousands of people from Maryland to Connecticut were ordered to leave low-lying coastal areas, including 375,000 in lower Manhattan and other parts of New York City, 50,000 in Delaware and 30,000 in Atlantic City, N.J.

However, many have chosen to ignore the evacuation orders, CTV’s Tom Walters told Canada AM from New York on Monday.
