Update: Weakened Noel Hammering Canada and New England
Noel Reaches Hurricane Status

(9 p.m.) -- Though no longer being monitored by the National Hurricane Center, the disorganized post-tropical remains of Noel are busy battering the Canadian and New England coasts, hitting the region with sustained winds of up to 56 miles per hour, according to a Reuters report.

Heavy rains have resulted in power outages along the shorelline, as well as dangerous ocean conditions -- but with few ships in the region, there are currently no itinerary changes to note.

On Thursday evening, Noel reached Category One hurricane status, with maximum sustained winds of 80 miles per hour. The storm is being blamed for the deaths of at least 120 people, the great majority from Hispaniola, the shared island nation that includes the Dominican Republic and Haiti.
