Canadian soldiers armed with chainsaws have fanned out across the Halifax area to help clean up the tangled mess left by post-tropical storm Dorian.

Utility companies in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and P-E-I are facing a massive task in restoring electricity to tens of thousands of customers.

Many will be without power until next week.

Nova Scotia sustained the most damage from Dorian's hurricane-force winds gusts. 

Meantime, supplies are still pouring into the Bahamas to help survivors of the most powerful hurricane to ever hit the islands.

The death toll from Dorian is rising, with at least 45 people killed.

One of the dead is a 27-year-old woman from Windsor, Ontario.

Hundreds are still missing.

The Health Minister in the Bahamas says they are working to account for every single person, but it's possible some victims were washed out to sea and may never be found.
