The latest on our weekend forecast:
“The Red Cross is advising people — especially those in flood-prone areas — to be prepared for severe weather heading for Atlantic Canada.
Bill Lawlor, director of disaster management in Atlantic Canada, says the Red Cross is ready to mobilize volunteers to go where they are needed.
A good soaking from the remnants of tropical storm Hanna is part of a wet weather triple-header forecast for the region this weekend.
The first system is moving in Saturday ahead of Hanna, the second will come from Hanna on Sunday, and the third involves a system moving in from the west.
By the time it’s all over on Monday, the region could see upwards of 50 to 90 millimetres of rain.
Lawlor says strong winds are also expected, so people should secure lawn furniture and other loose objects in their yard that could become flying debris.”
