By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Hurricane Fiona has strengthened to a category 4 storm as it races toward Atlantic Canada.
Hurricane conditions are expected to affect Nova Scotia tonight.
On the forecast track, the center of Fiona will approach Nova Scotia later today, move across Nova Scotia and into the Gulf of St. Lawrence on Saturday, and then across Labrador and over the Labrador Sea on Sunday.
Maximum sustained winds are near 130 mph (215 km/h) with higher gusts.
Although gradual weakening is forecast, Fiona is expected to be a powerful hurricane-force cyclone when it moves across Atlantic Canada.
A dangerous storm surge could produce coastal flooding within the warning areas in Atlantic Canada in areas of onshore winds. Near the coast, the surge will be accompanied by large and destructive waves.
Swells generated by Fiona are affecting the Turks and Caicos Islands, the Bahamas, the southeastern United States coast, and Bermuda.
These swells will continue to spread northwestward across the western Atlantic toward the mid-Atlantic and northeast coasts of the United States and Atlantic Canada today. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.
