The Vancouver Sun further reports that the hurricane shut down power to more than 200,000 Nova Scotian households, but that there were no reports of injuries and only scattered reports of flooding and property damage. The Associated Press reports that Earl dumped heavy, wind-driven rain on Cape Cod on Friday night.
Earl passed over Canada with maximum sustained winds of 70 miles per hour, down a great deal from a peak of 145 m.p.h. reported on Thursday.
Storm warnings and watches have now been canceled. (For specific information please visit the NHC's Web site.)
