Tropical Storm Florence Reaches St. John's, Newfoundland
Two days after inflicting minimal damage in Bermuda as a Category One hurricane, Tropical Storm Florence is making its way across southern and eastern Newfoundland.

A triple warning (rainfall, wind and tropical storm) has been issued for the Avalon Peninsula and the south coast of Newfoundland, including cruise port St. John's. Wind gusts are expected to top 78 miles per hour in some coastal communities. However, according to Canada's CBC, the storm is not expected to make as big an impact as initially forecasted.

The latest in the region:

Itinerary changes for Sea Princess, the next ship due into St. John's, are still to be determined.

Marine Atlantic announced a delay in its service between Newfoundland and Nova Scotia.

A power outage Wednesday morning in the west end of St. John's has affected several hundred customers.

We'll keep you posted as conditions warrant.
