Post-tropical storm Beryl leaves Atlantic Canada after dumping pouring rain

Sat Jul 22 14:06:00 CDT 2006

HALIFAX (CP) — Atlantic Canada is drying off after the remnants of tropical storm Beryl dumped heavy rain on the region.

The storm raced across southeastern Newfoundland on Saturday morning, leaving about 40 millimetres of rain in an area stretching from Port aux Basques to Gander.

Beryl was downgraded to a post-tropical storm when it tracked over Nova Scotia a day earlier, causing heavy downpours through most of the province, as well as in southern New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island.

Up to 60 millimetres of rain were recorded in those areas, with the most in Scott’s Bay, N.S., where 71 millimetres fell.

Strong winds hit areas south of the storm on Nova Scotia’s Atlantic coast, with gusts of up to 90 km/h.

By Saturday afternoon, Beryl had left Newfoundland and was expected to track south of Greenland as it continued to weaken.

The storm caused several power outages in the Halifax area, though police did not report any major problems.
