Local Student Experiences Wild Weather In P.E.I.

It is another day of clean-up and repairs for residents of Atlantic Canada after post-tropical storm Dorian ripped across the region over the weekend. Karly Pompo from Olds is attending Holland College in Summerside, P.E.I. According to Pompo, Dorian was classified as a category 1 hurricane when it hit P.E.I on Saturday, September 7th.

Many marinas around the Maritime provinces were beaten up badly by post-tropical storm Dorian.

She says heavy, heavy rainfall and winds of up to 120 kilometers an hour hit from about 3pm on Saturday, September 7th through until Sunday, September 8th.

Pompo had no power for 24 full hours and adds it is going to be a long haul to get all the damage cleaned up.

She adds it was really hard to get prepared for the arrival of the storm because stores in P.E.I were sold out of items like candles, flashlights, canned food and water.

Pompo says classes at Holland College were pushed back until noon on Monday, September 9th and while many students weren't able to make it in, she did.
