Today's weather trivia: 29 September

2003: A 1.5-metre storm surge from Hurricane Juan resulted in the highest
water level ever recorded in Halifax (NS) harbour. Had Juan hit just a few
hours sooner, the surge could have been 0.5 metres higher and caused more
extensive damage. Juan also forced the evacuation of the Canadian Hurricane
Centre in Dartmouth where the 19-floor building swayed so badly, forecasters
became nauseated.
