September 8, 2019



Dorian made a sixth landfall on Saturday near Sambro Creek in Nova Scotia, Canada, at 7:15 p.m., ADT, as a post-tropical cyclone.

The landfall came 15 miles south of Halifax, the capital city of Nova Scotia. The estimated sustained winds at landfall were 100 mph with the same strength as a Category 2 hurricane.

This landfall came nearly two weeks after Dorian made its first landfall as a tropical storm on the island of St. Lucia in the Lesser Antilles on Aug. 27.

6. Relatively common for Nova Scotia

Like the Outer Banks, they suffer from unfortunate geography. Love the place. If I ever have to run away to Canada, Halifax is top of the list. I'd just have to get use to the noon gun. And the occasional remnants of tropical storms.

11. NOAA just reported that dorian did not, repeat, did not

make landfall in nova scotia.

what dorian actually did was backtrack a bit, do a hop, skip, & a jump, then made landfall smack dab in the middle of alabama!

of course this proves trump right once again.
