On September 24, local time, after Hurricane Fiona made landfall in eastern Canada, it brought strong winds and heavy rain to the area.

At present, "Fiona" has weakened from a Category 3 hurricane to a Category 1 hurricane.

  Two women in Newfoundland were swept into the sea, local police said.

So far, "Fiona" has caused power outages to more than 360,000 residents in Nova Scotia; more than 82,000 residents in Prince Edward Island have lost power.

Mobile communications in many areas were also affected.

  Several roads were closed to traffic due to flooded roads and broken trees.

The Cape Breton regional government declared a state of emergency and asked residents to stay at home.

  The Canadian Hurricane Centre said winds would weaken as Fiona continued northward.
