Bill moves up the east coast to Canada

Hurricane Bill is expected to weaken as it passes north over cooler water but will probably still have hurricane strength as it reaches Nova Scotia tomorrow. Heavy waves appear to be the biggest danger from the storm.

The predicted path has it reaching the tiny French islands of St. Pierre and Miquelon (yes, there are two islands belonging to France just off the east coast of Canada) before making landfall in Newfoundland. It is not often than a hurricane strikes the Rock; interesting that it is happening during this El Nino-influence hurricane season.
