Hurricane Fiona has been wreaking havoc since its emergence last week. After hitting Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, the tropical storm set its sights on Eastern Canada. Environment Canada issued a warning for parts of eastern Quebec and the Atlantic provinces as strong winds, heavy rainfall and storm surges were predicted.

After turning into a category four hurricane, Fiona eventually hit Canada, causing major widespread damage in numerous regions across the east from Cape Breton, Charlottetown, and Port-aux-Basques all the way to Les Iles-de-la-Madeleine, to name a few. Most of Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick lost power as Hurricane Fiona made landfall.

After touching down on Friday afternoon, the storm has gone on to cause floods, break power lines, damage roads and surrounding nature and cause major destruction to homes along the coastline.

Residents living in towns and cities heavily affected by Hurricane Fiona took to social media to share photos and videos of the aftermath, proving that this landfall was one of the most calamitous in Canada's history.
