Canada sends troops to help clear Fiona's devastation; Ian may become major hurricane

Canada's military has mobilized to help and officials are trying to assess the scope of devastation of from former Hurricane Fiona. It swept away houses, stripped off roofs and knocked out power across the country’s Atlantic provinces. Fiona hit before dawn Saturday as a post-tropical cyclone, battering Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Quebec at hurricane strength. Defense Minister Anita Anand says troops will help remove fallen trees, restore transportation links and do whatever else is required for as long as it takes. Fiona caused at least five deaths in the Caribbean, but there were no confirmed fatalities or serious injuries in Canada.
