Jason Mew, director of EMO's incident management division reported saying that people shouldn't wait until the last minute to get essential items.

A meteorologist for Environment and Climate Change Canada, Bob Robichaud said the latest information suggests Nova Scotia will be hardest hit by Fiona overnight from Friday to Saturday.
