Hurricane Dorian knocked out power for hundreds of thousands of people in Nova Scotia, Canada, on Sunday. The storm hit near the city of Halifax, ripping roofs off apartment buildings, knocking over a construction crane, and uprooting trees before heading into northwestern Newfoundland and southeastern Labrador during the afternoon. The Canadian government is sending troops to the Maritimes to restore electricity, clear roadways, and evacuate residents of flooded areas. Officials report no storm-related deaths in Canada.
