    The remnants of Hurricane Arthur are now in the process of fizzling out over eastern Canada having caused some flooding across the east coast of North America.

    The storm was downgraded from a Category 1 hurricane on Saturday as it lashed New England and the Canadian provinces of Nova Scotia and Halifax as it rolled away from Cape Cod and headed towards Newfoundland.

    Arthur made landfall on the coast of North Carolina as a Category 2 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson scale.

    There were concerns that it could trigger severe flooding along the Mid-Atlantic States, but in the end the fast moving system move through quickly, reducing the duration of the heaviest rain.
