Tropical cyclone information statement updated by the Canadian
Hurricane Centre of Environment Canada at 8:41 AM ADT Friday
26 October 2012.
Tropical cyclone information statement for:
Prince Edward Island
For hurricane Sandy.
The next statement will be issued by 3:00 PM ADT.
This is an updated preliminary information statement to discuss the potential impact of hurricane Sandy in Canada. An updated statement is planned for 3 PM ADT.
Hurricane Sandy will be moving through the Bahamas today with winds in excess of 120 km/h. During the weekend Sandy is forecast to track northward while remaining at or near hurricane strength. Sandy will
begin to lose some of its tropical characteristics during the next two days, it will however remain a large and powerful cyclone as it shifts toward the East Coast of the United States.
Sandy will quite likely impact parts of Eastern Canada early next week. The track and intensity will, as always, depend on many changing factors over a period of several days. Thus, it is too early to meaningfully state how the storm will affect particular areas. At this point in time we encourage consulting the forecasts periodically during the weekend.
Please also refer to the public and marine forecasts and warnings issued by Environment Canada for your area.
