A powerful nor'easter has left tens of thousands without power across Nova Scotia.
The storm, packing winds of up to 120 km/h, knocked down trees, damaged roofs and left many in the dark.
As of early Friday morning, Nova Scotia Power said nearly 140,000 customers were without power. Roughly one-third of those in the dark are in the Halifax area.
Wind and storm surge warnings remain in effect.
Weather specialist John Wilson said the winds will slowly diminish throughout the day on Friday.
"Flurries and blowing snow will replace the rain as we drop solidly to -4 today and -12 tonight," said Wilson.
The nor'easter, described by meteorologists as a "bomb cyclone" due to its rapid strengthening, roared up the U.S. east coast, causing flooding and blizzards for hundreds of thousands of people.
