Environment Canada said Fiona is now expected to impact the eastern shore on Friday, as it transforms into a strong post-tropical storm.The weather agency said there are indications of a deep hybrid low-pressure system, which possesses both tropical and intense winter storm-type properties.

Fiona could bring very heavy rainfall and severe winds.“We’ll see some very strong, possibly damaging winds, probably a lot of heavy rainfall over some areas,” said Canadian Hurricane Centre meteorologist Ian Hubbard on Tuesday.“And we are expecting to see some coastal flooding, in terms of large waves and storm surge at some point.“ Tropical cyclone statement issued for Atlantic Canada as Fiona tracks north Hubbard said there was still a large cone of uncertainty on Tuesday, meaning there wasn’t enough detail about where Fiona would go.

It was an 800-kilometre range centred near eastern Cape Breton in Nova Scotia.On Wednesday, however, that range shrunk to about 600 to 700 kilometres, centred over Cape Breton, “with a broad coverage of hurricane-force winds including over land,” Environment Canada said.“This storm certainly has the potential to be quite severe.”A new update on Fiona from Environment Canada will be released Wednesday at 3 p.m.

Novel by Sri Lanka’s Shehan Karunatilaka wins Booker Prize
Colombo (News 1st) – Sri Lankan Writer Shehan Karunatilaka won the prestigious Booker Prize for fiction on Monday (17) for “The Seven Moons of Maali Almeida,” a satirical “afterlife noir” set during Sri Lanka’s brutal civil war.Karunatilaka, one of Sri Lanka’s leading authors, won the 50,000 pound ($57,000) award for his second novel. The 47-year-old, who has also written journalism, children’s books, screenplays and rock songs, is the second Sri Lanka-born Booker Prize winner, after Michael Ondaatje, who took the trophy in 1992 for “The English Patient.”Karunatilaka received the award from Camilla, Britain’s queen consort, during a ceremony at London’s Roundhouse concert hall.The judges’ unanimous choice, “The Seven Moons of Maali Almeida” is the darkly humorous story about a murdered war photographer investigating his death and trying to ensure his life’s legacy.Karunatilaka said Sri Lankans “specialize in gallows humor and make jokes in the face of crises”.“It’s our coping mechanism,” he said, and expressed hope that his novel about war and ethnic division would one day be “in the fantasy section of the bookshop.”Former British Museum director Neil MacGregor, who chaired the judging panel, said judges chose the book for “the ambition, the scope and the skill, the daring, the audacity and the hilarity of the execution.”“It’s a book that takes the reader on a rollercoaster journey through life and death, right to what the author describes as the dark heart of the world,” MacGregor said.
