Consequences of a storm eliminated in Quebec

Overnight into November 1, Eastern Canada was hit by a powerful rainstorm accompanied by gusty winds.
It affected Quebec, New Brunswick, and some other provinces. According to the US National Weather Service, strong winds gusting to 30 meters per second knocked down hundreds of trees and banners. Almost all of the affected provinces experienced power outages.
Thus, almost one million homes and office buildings were left without power in the worst-hit province of Quebec. Emergency crews in the affected provinces were on a high alert.
On Friday, school classes were cancelled in some cities of Quebec because of the storm. The adverse weather conditions also caused flight cancellations and delays at major airports, including International Airport of Montreal.
