Legend of sources

Ella made landfall over Newfoundland as a tropical storm with winds of 111 km/h on October 22.

Ella originated east of the Bahamas on October 14, 1962. Ella tracked in a northeasterly direction from this origin and grew to give winds of 185 km/h. Ella came into the CHC Response Zone on October 21 and moved into Canadian waters just after midnight on the 22, containing winds of 120 km/h. Ella reached the Avalon Peninsula of Newfoundland later that morning but had been downgraded to a tropical storm of 111 km/h by the time it made landfall. No damage was reported in Newfoundland or the Maritimes from this storm as it left the CHC Response Zone on its northeasterly track, on the morning of October 23.
