It's time to get ready. The latest Hurricane Teddy track has the storm hitting Atlantic Canada next week so an alert has been issued for parts of the region. There could be heavy rainfall, strong winds and big waves when it comes ashore.
With Teddy making its way north, the potential impacts for Atlantic Canada are being warned about.
The Canadian Hurricane Centre has put out a tropical cyclone statement about the storm as the track has it going over parts of four provinces.
"Tropical cyclone" is another name for "hurricane."
In Newfoundland, the areas of Burgeo - Ramea, Burin Peninsula, Channel-Port aux Basques and vicinity, and Connaigre are included.
Every part of Nova Scotia and P.E.I. is also included in the statement.
Quebec's Îles-de-la-Madeleine is expected to feel the impacts of the storm because of its location just north of P.E.I. in the Gulf of St. Lawrence.
As of September 19, the forecasted track of Hurricane Teddy has it reaching Atlantic Canada on September 22 and September 23.
It's currently a category three hurricane and will likely be a category two when it comes to Canadian waters south of Nova Scotia.
After it passes Bermuda, the Canadian Hurricane Centre said Teddy will start to accelerate towards the region.
Then it's expected to become a strong post-tropical storm.

Hurricane Teddy could bring significant rainfall especially in the places north and west of the storm's track.
Currently, the Canadian Hurricane Centre is forecasting that the higher amounts will be in the southern Maritimes and the south coast of Newfoundland.
Most places will also experience tropical-storm-force winds with ones in the south feeling hurricane-force gusts.
It's actually possible that the leaves on trees could enhance the winds and result in power outages.

Along southern waters, bigs waves are expected to build as well with the highest ones the southern Nova Scotia and Newfoundland coasts.
Storm surge could happen but the Canadian Hurricane Centre said it's too early to tell which specific places could get that.
An earlier storm track for Hurricane Teddy had it hitting Nova Scotia directly from the south and then moving north across the province and into P.E.I.
