Update: Kyle Fading as it Moves Over Canada

September 29, 2008
(Update, 1 p.m.) -- Kyle is fading fast as it heads north over Canada. The storm made landfall in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia as a Category One hurricane -- quite a rarity in Canada -- late Sunday, dumping buckets of rain and knocking out power in thousands of homes. After passing over the cold waters off Nova Scotia, the storm weakened significantly en route to New Brunswick; it's expected to further dissipate over the next two days. This will be our last report.

(September 28, 8:30 p.m. EST) -- Hurricane Kyle is battering Canada, the center of the storm having almost reached the western tip of Nova Scotia.

The fast moving storm is progressing north rapidly at a speed of 30 miles per hour, and is currently located 95 miles south of Saint John. Kyle is expected to reach New Brunswick later this evening.

With maximum sustained winds of 75 miles per hour, Kyle remains a Category One hurricane, but weakening is expected over the next 24 hours.

So far, Royal Caribbean, Princess, Cunard and Holland America have altered itineraries. See the latest changes here.
