Canada Deploys Troops To Assist In The Cleanup Of Hurricane Fiona’s Destruction

1 min read


The Canadian military has been called in after Hurricane Fiona knocked out electricity to hundreds of thousands of people in Atlantic Canada, and officials are attempting to determine the extent of the disaster. Fiona made landfall as a post-tropical storm before dawn on Saturday, slamming the Canadian provinces of Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland, and Quebec with hurricane-force winds, torrential rainfall, and massive waves.

Minister Of defense Anita Anand stated that the Canadian military will assist with removing fallen trees around eastern Canada, restoring transportation linkages, and anything else that is necessary for as long as it takes. She did not indicate how many troops will be deployed. Fiona was involved in at least five deaths in the Caribbean. While there have been no reported deaths in Canada, officials have been searching for a missing lady in the most devastated town of Channel-Port Aux Basques on Newfoundland’s southern shore.
