Hurricane Juan Slams Nova Scotia Coast

September 29, 2003

Hurricane Juan Slams Nova Scotia Coast
Hurricane Juan caused at least two deaths and extensive damage when it made landfall late Sunday west of Halifax, Nova Scotia.

According to, Halifax’s ferry terminal, its docking facilities and the wharfside area suffered damage and are closed. Power is out in the downtown area, mass transit is not operational and bridges are closed. The public has been asked to remain indoors because of hazards regarding downed power lines and fallen tree limbs.

Juan was a Category 1 hurricane with 80 mph winds when it made landfall, but was downgraded to a tropical storm early today.

NTA attempted to contact the Nova Scotia Department of Tourism & Culture and Destination Halifax for updates, but was only able to leave messages. If you have information on the Halifax area that fellow NTA members need to know, please send an e-mail to
