WATCH crane collapse onto buildings as Dorian makes landfall in Canada (VIDEOS)
After wreaking havoc and claiming dozens of lives in the Bahamas, the now post-tropical cyclone Dorian made landfall in the Canadian province of Nova Scotia, uprooting trees and power poles, triggering widespread blackouts.
Nearly three-quarters of the province was left without power as winds of up to 140kph and torrential rains battered Nova Scotia. Photos and videos of flooding, debris, downed trees and electricity lines were shared on social media as authorities warned of “severe impact” throughout the weekend.
I’ve said since installation it was going to come down, used to sway as much as 8 ft. at top during operation and high winds. pic.twitter.com/pBzLHpioBP— ron clark (@spencesbridge) September 7, 2019
Powerful gusts collapsed a crane onto buildings under construction in the provincial capital, Halifax. There have so far been no reports of deaths or injuries.

Previously, Dorian battered the coast of North Carolina, but the main damage was done in the Bahamas, where over 42 people were confirmed dead and hundreds are believed missing. The number of casualties is expected to grow.
