This below is a link to satellite,  North Atlantic - Visible Loop. Hurricane Leslie is the system in the
middle of the page. If you click on forecast points you will see she goes not far from New Brunswick
and points farther north in Canada. Over to the right is Hurricane Michael.

Hurricane Leslie became Tropical Storm Leslie but Hurricane Michael is still strong.
See the satellite image, just below. When you click on Trop Points that gives you the forecast tracks of the systems.

Excerpt from TWC -The Weather Channel Hurricane Central, Tropics Watch:
"Michael and Leslie will eventually do a dance near Newfoundland as the smaller former gets close to the larger latter."

"- The main forecast question at this point is whether Leslie hits or just misses Newfoundland."

NEW Leslie to make landfall in Newfoundland today

Residents in Newfoundland are bracing for possible flooding and high winds as tropical storm Leslie is expected to make landfall on Tuesday. 4:15 AM ET

Residents in Newfoundland are bracing for more flooding and high winds as tropical storm Leslie is expected to make landfall on Tuesday.

The Canadian Hurricane Centre was predicting at least 12 hours of intense rain over the island's hilly terrain, which could generate rapid runoffs, said the agency's program supervisor Chris Fogarty.

The centre was warning of possible damage from toppled trees, flooded streets and downed power lines.

The system was approximately 400 kilometres southwest of Argentia, on Newfoundland's southern Avalon Peninsula, and moving at a speed of 65 km/h, according to a statement from Environment Canada issued before 4 a.m. NT.

Leslie is in Canadian waters with near hurricane force strength, with maximum sustained winds of 110 km/h. The storm's centre was expected to be over the Burin Peninsula by mid-morning.

Environment Canada has issued weather alerts for the entire island of Newfoundland, with tropical storm warnings and hurricane watches in the south and east. The rest of the island was mostly under rainfall or wind warnings. The storm is expected to brush into southern Labrador.

Eastern Newfoundland is expected to bear the brunt of the wind with gusts of up to 120 km/h or higher, according to Environment Canada.

The western end of the island will likely see heavy rainfall. Leslie is also expected to drench parts of P.E.I. and Nova Scotia, where rain warnings were also issued.

Atlantic Canada drenched
All schools on Newfoundland were ordered closed in advance of the storm and Marine Atlantic said it was cancelling ferries between Newfoundland and Nova Scotia, with regular service not expected to resume until Wednesday.

Nasty weather had already battered Atlantic Canada before Leslie's arrival. The centre said a trough of low pressure had already dumped heavy rain on parts of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.

In the Indian Brook First Nation, in central Nova Scotia, 135 people were stranded as the heavy rain washed out the two access roads to the community.

Western Newfoundland was also drenched on Monday, flooding roads and homes.

Fire and Emergency Services worked Monday to shore up resources to ensure crews are ready to deal with the storm. Crews were trying to make sure that culverts and ditches were cleared to facilitate rapid runoffs, said Newfoundland Fire and Emergency Services spokeswoman Cheryl Gullage.

"We've warned people to stay away from fast moving bodies of water," Gullage said. "We've taken preparedness measures within our control to mitigate large damages but we have no idea how this will impact until it actually hits." She added that authorities are prepared to move people to shelters if necessary.

 HURRICANESGraphic: Inside the eye of a tropical storm
Leslie comes less than two years after Hurricane Igor ripped apart roads, destroyed bridges and knocked out power to many parts of eastern Newfoundland. The powerful storm, which was blamed for one death, caused approximately $200 million in damage.

However, Leslie was not expected to be as severe as Igor.
