Hurricane Fiona hit the Atlantic coast of eastern Canada on the 24th local time.

Fiona, which claimed the lives of at least eight people in the Caribbean earlier last week, was weakened by a tropical cyclone, then re-energized by a hurricane when it made landfall in Canada.

At an instant of over 160 km/h, a force of wind blew, uprooting trees and overhanging the trees, and the roof of the silo was blown off.

Electricity poles collapsed in various places, cutting power to 500,000 homes.

Canadian disaster authorities estimate it will take several months to recover from unprecedented damage, such as houses collapsing and facilities collapsing in strong winds.

As the damage was so severe, Prime Minister Trudeau canceled the presence of the former Prime Minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe, and announced that he would mobilize the army to recover the damage.

Around 5 pm local time on the 25th, ‘Super Typhoon’ Noroo made landfall on Polo Island, 60 km east of Manila, the capital of the Philippines.

With strong winds of up to 195 km/h, Roe is the most powerful typhoon to hit the Philippines this year.

Thousands of islanders were evacuated before landing, ships and planes were grounded, and schools and government offices were closed.
