Hurricane Igor is one of four major hurricanes so far this year. Forecasters were predicting an active season with four to six of the hurricanes becoming major storms. Danielle, Earl, Karl and Igor have all gained Category 3 strength in the Atlantic at some point this season.
Two of these storms have already had an impact on Canadian shores as well. Earl brought heavy rains and damaging winds to the Maritime provinces and now Igor has its sights set on Newfoundland. It's still a Category 1 storm with its outer bands affecting the island.
The Weather Network's Chris Scott says Igor will be especially powerful as it teams up with a cold front.
“We're seeing just the right interaction between the tropical system and a cold front swinging down from the northwest, which will actually intensify the system and turn it into a monster of an Atlantic storm,” explains Scott.
And many areas are facing those monstrous conditions already. Here's a look at just some of the feedback we've received from our Facebook Weather Fans:
There have also been reports of power outages, road closures and flight cancellations.
