After breezing by the U.S., Hurricane Bill is expected to swamp parts of Canada with seven inches of rain and 55 mile-an-hour winds.

The storm has been skirting the East Coast, churning out dangerous rip currents and shutting down beaches. Bill has caused little damage and the tropical storm warning along Massachusetts' coastline has been lifted.

In Canada, officials say there have been power outages reported and some roadways along the coast have been shut down. More than 50 flights at the Halifax airport have been canceled with Bill bearing down.

The storm is forecast to approach Newfoundland by Sunda night and make landfall Monday. Nearly the entire province is under a tropical storm watch.

Bill is expected to weaken as it moves over cooler water.
