Tropical Storm Leslie's stiff winds and heavy rains lashed Newfoundland as the storm made landfall Tuesday, knocking out power in several towns and forcing the cancellation of all flights at the island's main airport.
Hurricane Igor's winds strengthened as parts of the storm made landfall in eastern Canada on Tuesday. In the Pacific, a new tropical storm formed and was headed near a popular tourist area in Mexico.
The Canadian Hurricane Centre predicted at least 12 hours of intense rain over the northeastern province's hilly terrain, which could generate rapid runoffs, said the agency's program supervisor Chris Fogarty.
"The worst weather part of the storm is actually making landfall," said Chris Fogarty, of the Canadian Hurricane Center. "It doesn't have that hurricane appearance any more, but the winds are actually increasing. A major swath of wind is about go through Eastern Newfoundland and we're quite concerned about that."
