Tens of thousands of hydro customers remain without power as Lee, now a strong post-tropical storm, begins moving out of the Maritimes into the Gulf of St. Lawrence.

Lee is moving out of western Prince Edward Island and as of Sunday morning was heading across the Gulf of St. Lawrence, passing west of the Magdalen Islands. The storm is expected to reach the northern tip of Newfoundland by Sunday evening.

Officials say conditions are beginning to improve in many areas of Nova Scotia and southern New Brunswick, but the region will continue to experience rain, strong winds, and high waves along the Atlantic coast throughout the day.

Tropical storm warnings are in effect for Kings County, Prince Edward Island, the Magdalen Islands, and Antigonish County, Cape Breton Island, Guysborough County, and Halifax County, east of Porters Lake in Nova Scotia. However, those warnings have ended for Queens County, Prince Edward Island, and Pictou County and Halifax Metro – Halifax County West in Nova Scotia.

As Lee continues to weaken, conditions in most areas to the south and east of the storm are expected to improve through the day.
