Post Tropical Storm Danny - Storm Summary


Laurissa Anyas-Weiss, content producer

August 29, 2009 — Post tropical storm Danny was no longer a tropical storm by the time it hit Atlantic Canada on Saturday night but for many it packed more of a punch than Hurricane Bill the week before.

When Hurricane Bill hit Atlantic Canada it was still packing winds up to 140 km/h but many in the area didn't feel them. For the most part, the strongest winds were to the east of the storm. Post tropical storm Danny was a different story.

Danny hit the Maritimes with the full force of its winds and rain. Bill moved quickly through which helped to lessen rainfall totals. Danny, on the other hand, combined with two lows, one moving in from the west and another from the east. This turned Danny into a serious rain maker while dropping temperatures. When Danny hit Atlantic Canada, the only thing tropical about the storm was the rain.

See below for rainfall amounts and wind speeds from Post tropical storm Danny compared to Hurricane Bill the week before.
