Canada Winter Storm

February 9, 2013 by  

Canada Winter Storm, The winter storm that pummelled southern Ontario and parts of the U.S. today is moving across Quebec tonight, with Atlantic Canada next to feel its icy blast. Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and southern New Brunswick are all under blizzard or blowing snow warnings. Newfoundland is under a winter storm watch for Saturday afternoon.

The worst weather is expected to hit the Maritimes overnight and into Saturday. CBC meteorologist Jay Scotland said as much as 40 centimetres of snow is possible in Nova Scotia, and wind gusts could reach a maximum of 100 km/h.

In Ontario, the winter blast caused long delays for evening commuters with more than 350 accidents reported in the province alone, and at least four weather-related fatalities.

The OPP said a 45-kilometre eastbound stretch of Highway 401 east of Brockville remained closed Friday night after a pair of collisions.

The driver of a commuter bus was taken to hospital this afternoon after his vehicle rolled over in the eastbound lanes of Highway 401 near Brockville, 115 kilometres south of Ottawa. The OPP said some of the 38 passengers also suffered minor injuries.
