Newfoundland does get tropical storms

Mobile, Ala., (WKRG) - Newfoundland gets tropical storms and hurricanes! We often don't focus on Canada when you think about tropical weather but eastern Canada sticks way out into the path of fading hurricanes and tropical storms.

2011 Tropical Storm Ophelia
2009 Tropical storm Bill
2002 Hurricane Gustav
2000 Hurricane Michael
1995 Hurricane Luis
1989 Tropical Storm Dean
