Approaching weather system to batter N.L.’s south, west coasts

A weather system heading for Newfoundland has prompted a warning from Fire and Emergency Services (FES).

An approaching weather system is expected to cause higher-than-normal water levels and pounding surf on the south and west coasts of Newfoundland.

According to Environment Canada, higher-than-normal water levels and pounding surf is expected along the south coast of the province from Cape Race to Port aux Basques late this evening and near midnight.

These conditions are also expected along the west coast from the Bay of Islands to Cape Ray near midnight and overnight tonight.

FES advises residents should be cautious around coastlines and waterways during this time period.

Municipalities are also reminded to take precautions in advance of the system.
