Hurricane Igor hits Canada

41699.jpegHurricane Igor's winds strengthened as parts of the storm made landfall in eastern Canada on Tuesday. In the Pacific, a new tropical storm formed and was headed near a popular tourist area in Mexico.

A tropical storm warning and a hurricane watch for Igor were declared for the coast of Newfoundland, on Canada's eastern coast, where people were urged to prepare for possible power failures and flooding from heavy rain, according to The Associated Press.

The forecast tracking tells us that the center of Igor will be near the southeastern tip of Newfoundland later today and then take a turn northwards tomorrow.

Igor is currently still a Category 1 hurricane but the NHC states that it will probably strengthen and by later today will become an intense extratropical cyclone.

A Hurricane Watch is now in effect for the coast of Newfoundland from Stones Cove northward and eastward to Fogo Island. Tropical Storm Warnings are in place for the coast of Newfoundland from Burgeo northward and eastward to Triton AND the islands of St. Pierre and Miquelon, Only Kent informs.

Representatives of the North Korean administration issued a statement saying that the United States and its allies have lost the "political and military confrontation" to the DPRK
