Province Thanks Nova Scotians for Being Prepared for Hurricane Teddy

Nova Scotians did their part by being prepared, listening to weather reports and taking care of each other during Hurricane Teddy. As a result, the province suffered minimal damage and power lost during the storm has been fully restored to homes and businesses.

“I want to thank Nova Scotians for taking this potentially dangerous situation seriously and for showing compassion toward friends and neighbours in need,” said Municipal Affairs and Housing Minister Chuck Porter. “First responders, municipalities and our partners in critical infrastructure also did a tremendous job of preparing, keeping the province informed and restoring services where needed.”

Hurricane Teddy made landfall as a post tropical storm on Wednesday, Sept. 23, near Ecum Secum on the Eastern Shore.

The Nova Scotia Emergency Management Office (EMO)is no longer monitoring the storm, and the provincial co-ordination centre ended its response at 10 a.m. today, Sept. 24.
