ST. JOHN'S, Newfoundland — Hurricane Igor pelted Canada's Atlantic coast province of Newfoundland with heavy rain Tuesday, flooding communities, washing out roads and stranding some residents in their homes.




The Canadian Hurricane Centre said Igor had transformed into a "post-tropical" storm, which has a different structure from a hurricane but still packs the same punch. The storm battered Newfoundland, on Canada's eastern coast.




In the Pacific, a mild tropical storm formed and then weakened into a tropical depression over the Mexican resort area of Baja California.




The Canadian Hurricane Centre said the change in Igor's classification does not reflect a downgrade in the storm's intensity because winds have strengthened as the storm draws energy from another weather system to the west.
