HALIFAX — ExxonMobil says it has removed some of its workers from offshore oil platforms as hurricane Chris advances toward Atlantic Canada.
The Category 2 storm, which was about 600 kilometres off Cape Hatteras, N.C., on Wednesday, was expected to track south of Nova Scotia early Thursday before possibly making landfall in eastern Newfoundland later in the day.
ExxonMobil says that an unspecified number of non-essential employees have been taken off the Sable Offshore Energy facilities, which are near Sable Island, about 300 kilometres southeast of Halifax.
