Arthur at landfall was near hurricane strength winds; winds recorded at the Fredericton Airport were 100 km/h with rainfall in the amount of 120 – 145 mm of rain. High winds over a 24-hour period led to a loss of power throughout the province; the hardest hit were the Fredericton and Woodstock areas.
