article imageHurricane Bill closes Nova Scotia Parks Special

By Kevin Jess     Aug 22, 2009 in Environment
The Canadian province of Nova Scotia will be shutting down all of its parks today in anticipation of the arrival of Hurricane Bill.
Nova Scotia will announce shortly in a press release that it will be closing all of its parks as a safety measure considering reports from the Hurricane center.
Andrew Mitton, a spokesperson for the Kentville, Nova Scotia office of the Department of Natural Resources said, As of 5:00 PM ASTSaturday, we will be closing all provincial camping parks, beach parks as well as day use parks.
Mitton added, Instead of the storm hitting us with people in the parks we would like to get them out to safer locations.
The Canadian Hurricane Centre says hurricane Bill is expected to move farther south of Nova Scotia than initially predicted, with winds that may not be as strong as previously thought.
Mitton added, "We will reassess on Monday to see how much damage has been done to the parks and make a decision then on reopening."
