Sept. 9, 2019, Halifax – Two days after Hurricane Dorian swept through Atlantic Canada, hundreds of thousands of people still have no power, leaving schools and some businesses closed Monday. The Category 2 hurricane made landfall near Sambro, N.S., on Saturday, taking down power lines and trees across the region, and leaving a mess for power utility crews that may take up to a week to fully recover from, said Nova Scotia Power president Karen Hutt on Sunday.
