and on the web at hurricanes.gov/text/MIATCDAT2.shtml.

WIND:  Gale-force and storm-force winds are expected to continue
across portions of Atlantic Canada through early Sunday.

RAINFALL:  Fiona is forecast to produce 1 to 2 inches (25 to 50 mm) 
of rainfall across portions of Atlantic Canada, with storm total 
maxima as high as 10 inches (250 mm) across Nova Scotia, New 
Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and western Newfoundland. Flooding 
is expected, some of which could be significant.

STORM SURGE: A dangerous storm surge is expected to produce coastal
flooding in portions of Atlantic Canada in areas of onshore winds.
Near the coast, the surge will be accompanied by large and
destructive waves.

SURF:  Swells generated by Fiona are affecting Atlantic Canada, the
northeastern United States coast, and Bermuda. The swells are
likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.
