The City of Corner Brook has been closely monitoring the upcoming forecast regarding Hurricane Fiona. City crews have been mobilized to respond if necessary to any damage which may occur due to the anticipated rain and wind.

We would also ask home and business owners to check catch-basins which may be adjacent to their properties, and make a note of regularly checking their properties for flooding. Please be prepared for the possibility of a power outage. Because of the windy nature of this hurricane, it would be prudent to trim trees on your property and secure anything which could blow away.
It is always good to plan ahead for weather events. For more information on developing a 72 Hour Plan for your home, please follow this link to the Government of Canada’s advice.
