Rare hurricane hits east Canada

Hurricane Kyle has made landfall in eastern Canada, the country's hurricane service reports.
It struck near Yarmouth on the southern tip of Nova Scotia province, before being downgraded to a tropical storm. There are no reports of damages.
On Saturday, the neighbouring US state of Maine issued its first hurricane watch for 17 years.
Five years ago Hurricane Juan killed two people and caused extensive damage in Canada's Atlantic provinces.
Kyle is now moving over the Bay of Fundy towards New Brunswick province.
It is the 11th named storm of the season, which has already brought extensive damage and hundreds of deaths in Caribbean nations.
