From a list of Do’s & Don’ts when a hurricane comes to Nova Scotia:

“Don’t get a mohawk and an old lead pipe, strap yourself into some motorcycle leathers or latex, form a post-apocalyptic survival gang with your friends and family to hunt down, kill and eat your neighbours. A hurricane is not that big a deal in Atlantic Canada. Most will get away unscathed, with property damage or a bit of flooding the worst of it. The rain will stop and the sun will come out eventually—the day after Juan was gorgeous and sunny. Cannibalism is rarely necessary.”

Hurricane Earl’s track has shifted slightly to the west. Lots of different models to look at. Canada’s Hurricane Centre have the track further east than the US’s. Storm warnings will be issued tomorrow!
