Communities in Nova Scotia are experiencing connection disruptions as a result of wildfires that broke out on Saturday and pushed the province into a state of emergency.
Network data provided by Netblocks shows a serious disruption to internet services across communities in Nova Scotia, Canada. The outage affected clients using the Eastlink and City Wide internet serivices.
By May 29th, connectivity disruptions had been registered in the Lunenburg, Upper Tantallon, LaHave, Chester Basin, Bridgewater, Oxford, Bedford, Hammonds Plains, and Shelburne regions in Canada.
The outages are linked to wildfires that besieged parts of the province of Nova Scotia. Reportedly, the Shelburne County fire “escaped containment” on Saturday night. By Sunday afternoon, the fire had ravaged approximately 1,354 hectares, expanding from its previous size of 775 hectares earlier in the day and causing evacuations.
Halifax, Nova Scotia’s biggest city, declared a state of local emergency late on Sunday.
