Nova Scotia emergency officials update public as Hurricane Dorian rolls into Nova Scotia

Hurricane Dorian is expected to make landfall in Nova Scotia late Saturday, unleashing a barrage of torrential rain, pounding surf and howling gusts reaching up to 140 kilometres per hour along the Atlantic coast. The Canadian Hurricane Centre says hurricane warnings remain in effect for much of mainland Nova Scotia and Cape Breton. Tropical storm warnings have been issued for P.E.I., southeastern New Brunswick and western Newfoundland. According to officials at briefing early in the day one of the biggest risks to the public is flying objects, broken trees, and flash flooding. Emergency officials in the Halifax region called for voluntary evacuations along the municipality's Atlantic shoreline.
