PEI braces for Teddy’s impact

CHARLOTTETOWN — As storm Teddy makes landfall in Nova Scotia, authorities in Prince Edward Island are urging the public to be vigilant. The post-tropical storm’s slow trajectory means that while its potency will be dulled by the time of its arrival, its impact will be felt for longer than that of Dorian last year. Meanwhile, Island retailers are keeping busy. “We are definitely seeing an increase in traffic,” Tammy Clory, assistant manager of Charlottetown’s Home Hardware, told CBC News. “People are coming in looking for the batteries, flashlights, candles, anything for emergency preparation. We are running low on candles and unfortunately we have sold out of generators.”
