I've lived in the Gulf Coast for 15 years and therefore keep an eye on the hurricane situation each year and I don't think I've ever seen a hurricane do that. Does it happen and I just haven't noticed? (It's possible, because my primary focus is on hurricanes pointed at my house, and once I know it's going elsewhere, I generally turn my attention back to other things).
Is this really as bizarre as I think it is?
Fiona is supposed to be historically strong, but hurricanes have hit NS before. I do suspect climate change is making them more frequent and more severe, though.
Wishing safety and dryness to our Nova Scotians.
