Post-tropical storm Fiona arrived in Nova Scotia early Saturday morning. The Canadian Hurricane Centre tweeted early Saturday that Fiona is the lowest pressured land falling storm on record in Canada. In an early update, the centre said Fiona was expected to pass through Cape Breton in the morning, and then reach the Quebec Lower North Shore and Southeastern Labrador by late evening.
