    PHOTOS: Hurricane Arthur Slams East Coast, Canada

    After strengthening to a Category 2 hurricane late Thursday evening, Hurricane Arthur was downgraded to a Category 1 hurricane on Friday morning.

    Despite weakening, the storm left thousands without power in North Carolina and caused significant flooding and widespread damage. Even as the storm continued to weaken on Friday, the storm brought flooding rains and strong winds to New England and parts of Massachusetts.

    On Saturday morning, Arthur was downgraded to a tropical storm as it moved into Canada. On Saturday afternoon the storm continued to bring damaging wind gusts, heavy rain and pounding surf to Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick.

    The storm is now classified as a post-tropical storm.

    "The remnants of Arthur are spinning across eastern New Brunswick this afternoon," said AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Erik Pindrock. "Arthur merged with a cold front earlier today and lost its tropical characteristics, but it remains a potent storm capable of bringing some damaging wind to eastern Canda through the rest of the weekend."
