MIAMI (AP) — Forecasters say storm warning for the East Coast have all been called off and that former Hurricane Irene is headed into Canada still packing 50 mph winds.

The National Hurricane Center said late Sunday that tropical storm warnings are on for the south coast of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.

Irene which had at one time been a major hurricane as it headed toward the U.S., no longer had tropical characteristics.

It left behind heavy rains and severe flooding from North Carolina to New England.
