Days without power: Over 100,000 outages persist in Maritimes after Dorian

Trudeau, Goodale and Sajjan visit Halifax to survey Dorian recovery efforts

Hurricane Dorian brought wind, rain and heavy seas that knocked out power across the region.

The NHC's Tropical Weather Outlook predicts that by Thursday the chance of a tropical storm forming will be at 40 percent.

Now, there have been even named storms, eight tropical depression and two hurricanes, one of which unleashed devastation upon the Bahamas, leaving at least 70,000 people homeless.

That area was a trough of low pressure that was spreading rain and storms from Hispaniola northward into the southwestern Atlantic on Tuesday morning. The Bahamas' northern islands were recently left devastated by Hurricane Dorian.

The development chances during the next 48 hours are zero.

The National Hurricane Center now holds odds at 30% for that development over the next 5 days. This is something the PinPoint Weather Team will be keeping an eye on over the course of the week.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said El Nino revealed that oceanic and atmospheric patterns suggest conditions are more favourable for above-normal hurricane activity since El Nino has ended.

It is expected to move quickly westward during the next several days with some slow development possible late this week and over the weekend.

Forecasters are also watching a tropical wave that is midway between the Cabo Verde Islands and the Windward Islands.

Despite initial forecasts, Hurricane Dorian skirted past Florida and continued to climb up the East Coast.

Its development chances over the next five days are 20 percent.

This outlook covers the entire six month hurricane season, which concludes at the end of November. The period centered on September 10 is typically one of the most active.

Neil Jacobs, Ph.D., acting NOAA administrator, said: "NOAA will continue to deliver the information that the public depends on before, during and after any storms throughout the hurricane season".

Speaking Tuesday from a slightly damaged government wharf in Herring Cove, N.S., Goodale pledged financial support through disaster assistance programs, but he also made a point of urging fed-up cellphone users to take action, saying he's heard about their frustration "loud and clear". Barry came ashore in Louisiana on July 13 as a Category 1 hurricane.

On Sunday, Nova Scotia Power CEO Karen Hutt said the privately owned utility was facing a "worst case scenario" after Dorian roared over the middle of the province.
