Power lines have been downed and houses washed into the sea after Storm Fiona battered Canada’s coastline.
Officials say at least one person died after being washed out to sea in Newfoundland.
Fiona was downgraded from a hurricane to a tropical storm on Friday. Such weather events are rare in Canada, and police said the storm was “like nothing we’ve ever seen”.
The army has been deployed to Nova Scotia to assist the clean-up. Parts of five provinces experienced torrential rain and winds of up to 160km/h with widespread flooding and hundreds of thousands of people left without power.
