Rainfall image map of Subtrop 1, which entered the Canadian Hurricane Centre Response Zone as a strengthening tropical storm and reached hurricane strength just before moving into Canadian waters on the afternoon of October 24, 1979, passing south of Nova Scotia through the North Atlantic shipping lanes. The storm then passed Sable Island, becoming extratropical as it approached Newfoundland and merged with a larger extratropical low moving eastward over eastern Canada. Just before dawn on October 25, 1979, the storm made landfall in Newfoundland as a tropical storm and then dissipated on October 25, 1979. Maximum provincial rainfalls: 65 millimetres in Prince Edward Island, 74 millimetres in Nova Scotia and 47.3 millimetres in Newfoundland
