Fiona hit Atlantic Canada on Friday night into Saturday, causing widespread power outages, washing out roads and downing trees. As of 4 p.m. on Monday, there were still more than 170,000 customers without power.
Some of the hardest hit areas in the province were on Cape Breton Island. Local states of emergencies were declared in Cape Breton Regional Municipality (CBRM) and Victoria County on the island.
