Dorian swept across eastern PEI Saturday night leaving a path of downed trees, power outages and property damage. 

Power was lost for thousands at 4:30pm Saturday. As of Monday morning there were still wide spread power outages.

A warming centre at the Cardigan Fire Hall is open from 8 am to 8pm daily for anyone needing to cook a meal, obtain water or charge their devices.

It will remain so until power is fully restored in the area said Fire Chief Dwayne MacIntyre.

Mr MacIntyre said there are multiple  power lines down across the region, many across roads, after the winds on Saturday night topples trees.

A portion of the metal roof of Beck’s Furniture, a large three story building on the Montague waterfront, was blown off. Full extent of damage is not yet known. 

A tree crashed onto a truck in Lower Montague, just one of an untold number that snapped in the face of tropical storm winds. 

The Graphic will update as the recovery progresses.
