Deadly hurricane hits

The week's news at a glance.

Halifax, Nova Scotia

Hurricane Juan battered Nova Scotia with 80 mph winds this week, killing at least two people. One of the dead was a paramedic who was crushed when a tree fell on his ambulance. The storm knocked out power to thousands of homes in Halifax, the largest city on Canada’s east coast. Hundreds of people sought refuge in shelters. At least one large building, anapartment complex, partially collapsed. Clifford Lee, mayor of Charlottetown on Prince Edward Island, told the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. that the hurricane uprooted 150-year-old trees as it crashed ashore. “I have never seen something of this magnitude in my life,” he said.
