Hurricane Chris heads toward Newfoundland

Environment Canada updated its forecast for Chris Thursday afternoon, with a warning that heavy rain, strong winds, significant waves and storm surges could hit coastal areas of the island on Thursday. Between 40 and 70 millimetres of rain is now forecast for the northeast Avalon Peninsula — which includes St. John’s and several suburban towns — while about 30 to 40 mm are possible for the southeast Avalon.  Chris is expected to be a post-tropical storm by the time it arrives Thursday. Right now, it’s expected to pass well under Nova Scotia, then slowly weaken as it moves toward the Avalon Peninsula as a post-tropical storm late Thursday evening. >click to read<
