    Dorian makes landfall in Nova Scotia
    Dorian weakened to a hurricane-force post-tropical cyclone on Saturday but managed to knock out power for half a million people in Nova Scotia, according to an 11 p.m. ET advisory from the National Hurricane Center. Dorian was traveling over the Canadian Maritimes and is 60 miles south of the Magdalen Islands. It had maximum sustained winds of 90 mph winds and was moving north-northeast at 30 mph.

    Boats were pulled from the water in Hyannis, Massachusetts, on Friday and ferries waved their fees to bring residents on nearby islands back to the mainland.

    The monster storm was blamed for at least 43 deaths in the Bahamas. It's a number that officials warn will surely grow as thousands of people remain missing. Nearly 70,000 people are believed to be homeless on the islands, the U.N. said Friday.
