Rare hurricane hits east Canada

Hurricane Kyle has made a RARE landfall in eastern Canada. It struck near Yarmouth on the southern tip of Nova Scotia province, before being downgraded to a tropical storm. There are no reports of damages. Kyle is now moving over the Bay of Fundy towards New Brunswick province. On Saturday, the neighbouring US state of Maine issued its FIRST HURRICANE WATCH FOR 17 YEARS. Two to 4 inches of rain had already fallen along some coastal areas in Maine by midday Saturday and the storm was expected to deliver an additional 2 to 4 inches. It is the 11th named storm of the season. Five years ago Hurricane Juan killed two people and caused extensive damage in Canada's Atlantic provinces.
