On its way to Canada’s east coast, Dorian has been classed by the National Hurricane Centre as a post-tropical cyclone, albeit still with hurricane-strength winds.

Here are a few standout moments of what has happened so far.

 

East coast residents took to social media with reports of intense winds, trees toppling and even a crane that came crashing down in the middle of Halifax.
