Hurricane Larry is on its way to sweep through eastern Newfoundland tomorrow, bringing waves, rain, and possibly coastal flooding.
Tropical storm watches are in effect from the eastern part of the Burin Peninsula to St. Shott’s and from the northwest of Cape St. Francis to the Bonavista Peninsula.
Hurricane watches are in effect from North Cape Race to Cape St. Francis.
Hurricane Larry’s path is moving west, Newfoundland residents were warned to prepare
Environment Canada says Larry will rapidly degrade to a post-tropical storm once it surpasses colder Canadian waters and causes heavy rainfall of up to 50 millimeters as it moves through the area.
The agency adds that the region could experience hurricane-force winds of up to 130 kilometers per hour.
Prime Minister Andrew Furey is scheduled to make a storm readiness announcement at 12:30 pm local time.
