CORNER BROOK: Heed the warnings, this fall storm is fierce.

The centre of a well-developed fall storm will cross New Brunswick on its way to eastern Labrador. There is no escaping it: regardless of where you live in Atlantic Canada, you’ll experience highs winds and rain. Fortunately, the heavy rain only lasts 4 to 6 hours; the wind lingers a little longer. South to southeasterly gusts to 90 km/h will shift to the SW and drop off to 60 km/h behind the storm. Storm surge will also be a concern along south-east facing coastlines at high tide.
