Environment Canada said the islands could expect "storm to hurricane force winds" and heavy rainfall that would gradually diminish as Dorian headed toward Newfoundland.

Karen Hutt, the president of Nova Scotia Power, told CBC News that restoration to some parts of the province was going to take even more time than people might want.

These potential storms come in the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian, a Category 5 storm that ravaged the Bahamas earlier this week. After Nova Scotia, Dorian is expected to move toward Prince Edward Island and on Sunday reach Newfoundland, the Canadian Hurricane Centre projected.

Hutt asked those without power to be patient, saying she understood many people were frustrated by the company's inability to promise specific fix deadlines. The storm's worst damage in the U.S. appeared to be on Ocracoke Island, which even in good weather is accessible only by boat or air and is popular with tourists for its undeveloped beaches.

The storm pounded parts of North Carolina's Outer Banks Islands on Friday.

Earlier in the week, Brown angered Raiders general manager Mike Mayock by sharing a letter informing Brown of a fine on Instagram. Late Friday night, the Raiders chose to fine Brown $215k for conduct detrimental to the team over an altercation with G.M.

Foreign Affairs and North Abaco MP, Darren Henfield said: 'Power lines are down, lamp posts are down, trees are across the street - it is very unsafe to be outdoors if you don't have to be outdoors'. "There's definitely a little bit of nervousness for my auto, which is parked outside", she said. This storm's five-day track could bring it over the lower Bahamas.

Many schools in the region have announced they'll be closed today. The post-tropical cyclone is forecast to drop below hurricane strength Sunday.

Over 240,000 Canadians across three provinces remained without power as of 6 am this Monday morning as many continue to try and recover two days after Hurricane Dorian hit Atlantic Canada.

According to a report by the Nova Scotia Power inc., at least 380,000 of their customers were without electricity. Several hundred homes and businesses lost power. The NHC assures that Gabrielle poses no threat to land areas and is expected to downgrade to a low-pressure system by Tuesday. It was blamed for causing eight deaths, six of them in Nova Scotia.

"Environmental conditions could become a little more conducive for development when the disturbance moves near the Bahamas and Florida late this week", the center said.
