Maritimers Prepping For Hurricane Teddy Should Keep Pandemic In Mind: Expert
HALIFAX — The Canadian Hurricane Centre’s top meteorologist is suggesting the combination of hurricane Teddy and a continuing pandemic should prompt Maritimers to plan well ahead for potential power outages.Teddy remains on track to pass through wide areas of Atlantic Canada on Tuesday and Wednesday, bringing fierce winds and heavy rainfall.The centre says Teddy is currently a Category 3 system moving about 1,000 kilometres southeast of Bermuda with maximum sustained winds estimated at 204 kilometres an hour.The storm is expected to pass east of Bermuda on Monday and begin to accelerate towards Nova Scotia.The forecast says the centre of Teddy could make landfall along the Atlantic coast of Nova Scotia late Tuesday, with possible impacts including strong, potentially damaging winds, storm surges along with pounding surf and heavy rainfall.Forecasters say when it reaches Canadian waters south of the Maritimes it will be a Category 2 hurricane, and is expected to transition to a “very dangerous” tropical storm as it moves though the region.They say while the storm’s intensity is expected to diminish, the area to be affected by tropical storm force winds is likely to expand significantly, while winds could maintain hurricane force south of the forecast track.Even in August we were saying, whatever you need to get through a storm, you should purchase it before the storm is on the map.Bob Robichaud, Canadian Hurricane CentreThe hurricane centre’s senior forecaster, Bob Robichaud, notes the potential track is currently 360 kilometres wide, meaning the eye could go into the Gulf of Maine south of Nova Scotia or pass to the province’s east.He says residents are advised to prepare for hurricane-related power outages this fall, given the need to socially distance when shopping for supplies before storms.“Even in August we were saying, whatever you need to get through a storm, you should purchase it before the storm is on the map,” he said during an interview on Friday.“Now, not only is the storm on the map, it’s heading this way.”In May, the hurricane centre in Halifax warned of another active storm season, with Robichaud noting that the COVID-19 pandemic could make it difficult for people to prepare for rough weather.Above-normal hurricane seasonEarlier this year, the U.S.-based National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration also predicted an above-normal Atlantic hurricane season.The American agency said it was expecting 13 to 19 named storms — six to 10 of which could become hurricanes. Teddy is the 19th named storm of the season.Robichaud says various meteorological factors unfolding over the weekend could effect the storm’s intensity.As the storm moves out of the Caribbean over the North Atlantic, it will be over colder water, causing it to lose some power, said Robichaud.In addition, there is a high pressure area moving from the west into the Maritimes, bringing pleasant fall weather.“That area of high pressure, if it remains very, very strong, it will deflect the storm off one way or another,” he explained.The meteorologist said the potential hazards from Teddy are high winds and coastal storm surges.READ MORE Canadians Can Expect A ‘Fall To Savour’ This Year, The Weather Network Says Nature-Inspired Decor Ideas To Make Winter Pandemic Life More Bearable Canadians Are Trying To Extend Patio Season By Stocking Up On Outdoor Heaters Nova Scotia Power activated its emergency operations centre on Friday and announced it is mobilizing personnel and resources in advance of the storm’s arrival.“We have been closely monitoring hurricane Teddy for several days and taking steps to prepare,” said Matt Drover, Nova Scotia Power’s storm lead.The utility is encouraging customers to assemble an emergency kit that includes flashlights, a battery-powered radio and fresh water and to ensure backup generators are installed properly outdoors.The province’s emergency management office issued a release on Friday also encouraging citizens to prepare in advance.“Nova Scotians should also remember that they need to continue to follow COVID-19 public health direction as they prepare. Stores often have longer lineups in advance of a storm, and physical distancing of two metres and mask wearing are still required,” the agency said in a news release.At this point, forecasters say the highest rainfall amounts are likely for the southern Maritimes and the south coast of Newfoundland with pounding surf and a storm surge possible for parts of Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, the Magdalen Islands and Newfoundland.This report by The Canadian Press was first published Sept. 18, 2020.Also on HuffPost:

Ontario Reimposes Stricter Gathering Rules Across Province As COVID-19 Cases Surge
TORONTO — Ontario took a step back in its COVID-19 recovery on Saturday as Premier Doug Ford reimposed restrictions on social gatherings across the province in a bid to curb what he described as an “alarming growth” in new cases.In rolling back limits on the number of people who can assemble both indoors and out, Ford said he was responding to a recent surge in new diagnoses that continued into the weekend. Ontario reported 407 new diagnoses of COVID-19 and one new associated death on Saturday, marking the second day in a row that the provincial tally topped 400 and representing the highest level seen since early June.“Folks, the alarm bells are ringing,” Ford said at a rare weekend briefing alongside Health Minister Christine Elliott and Dr. Barbara Yaffe, the province’s associate chief medical officer of health.“Too much of (the increase) is being tied to people who aren’t following the rules. People who think it’s OK to hold parties; to carry on as if things are back to normal. They aren’t.”Saturday’s announcement of provincewide restrictions built on the regional measures the government introduced earlier this week in the three regions where the bulk of new cases have been identified.Ford said indoor gatherings must now be capped at 10 people across Ontario, down from 50 under relaxed measures that took effect under Stage 3 of the province’s pandemic recovery strategy. Outdoor gathering limits, previously at 100, are now set to 25.The government also set minimum fines of $10,000 for gathering organizers and $750 for those who attend.The tighter restrictions take effect across the province immediately and will be in place for at least the next 28 days, Ford said. They do not apply at staffed businesses, schools or places of worship.Ford imposed lower gathering limits on Toronto, Ottawa and peel Region on Thursday and had previously stated he intended to take a regional approach to pandemic-fighting efforts.But as case numbers surge, Ford said anxiety was mounting outside of the three primary hotspots.“Medical officers are out there, they’re concerned,” Ford said. “We follow the advice we’re getting off them.”Yaffe said the recent numbers are in keeping with some Health Canada projections about how an anticipated spike in COVID-19 cases could play out.She said the federal agency offered three prospective models — a large, sustained second wave of new cases; several smaller waves; or a steady but “slow burn.”Yaffe said it’s too soon to tell which of the first two models applies to Ontario, but said recent data suggests the third scenario is not in play.“I think when people hear ‘second wave,’ they assume we’re talking the big wave,” she said. “We’re hoping we’re not, but we are in a wave.” Saturday’s announcement came as Ontario processed a record-high number of COVID-19 tests, saying nearly 39,000 were processed in the past 24 hours.Ford said he hopes to involve the province’s pharmacies in testing of asymptomatic patients, possibly as soon as next week, but offered no other details. The plan has been met with concern from health-care unions who fear such a move would accelerate the spread of the virus.Ford also called on the federal government to make approving new testing methods a “number-one priority.”RELATED Ontario Tightens Gathering Limits In Toronto, Peel And Ottawa Conservative Leader Erin O'Toole Tests Positive For COVID-19 Guaranteed Basic Income Won’t Be Stealing Spotlight In Liberal Throne Speech Premiers Ask Feds For Billions In Additional Health-Care Funding Feds 'Urgently' Need To Make Private Nursing Homes Public After COVID-19 Outbreaks Meanwhile, word of the tightened social gathering limits drew praise from the mayor of a community bordering one of the major provincial hotspots.Markham, Ont., Mayor Frank Scarpitti, who oversees the city north of Toronto and not far from Peel Region, had been calling for stricter gathering limits as numbers began to climb.“This is welcome news after we asked the province to make this necessary change,” Scarpitti said in a statement. “Strict protocols have to remain in place to ensure the safety and protection of everyone. We all have a responsibility to do what is right and to avoid a false sense of security.”But New Democrat deputy leader Sarah Singh said Saturday’s announcement demonstrates poor planning from the government, saying officials should have had a more robust plan to cope with future waves of the virus.Singh also argued the lower social gathering limits should also be applied in the province’s recently reopened schools.“We need to see a provincewide rollback on class sizes,” she said in a statement. “How could Doug Ford believe it’s not safe to have more than 10 people in a gathering, but that it’s safe to have 30 kids in a classroom and 70 kids on a school bus?Ford said Saturday the province would keep a “sharp eye” on the situation in schools, where 72 cases of COVID-19 had surfaced in 60 facilities as of Friday.This report by The Canadian Press was first published Sept. 19, 2020.
