Firefighters, public works and Nova Scotia Power crews have been busy around Digby County clearing trees from roads and powerlines as winds from tropical storm Arthur break off branches and uproots trees.

Various streets and roads including Hwy 101 have been blocked temporarily.

Power out is out in town and around the county – the Nova Scotia Power online outages map is overloaded and not accessible but Tweets from @nspowerinc give a range of 6 to 12 hours for power restoration.

The Lobster Bash is still going at the Digby arena using a generator for power.
