Atlantic Canadians keeping watchful eye on three tropical storms

Residents of Atlantic Canada are keeping a close eye on three tropical storms churning their way across the Atlantic.

Hurricane Florence, the first major hurricane of the season, is heading toward the US Eastern Seaboard, with forecasters warning it could be one of the most catastrophic storms to hit the region in decades.

However, Florence is not expected to have any impact on Canada, given its predicted track into the US mainland, where it will likely weaken considerably on the weekend.

As for the two other storms spinning westward across the Atlantic, Isaac and Helene, both are also expected to steer clear of Canadian territory.
