Snowstorm headed for Atlantic Canada
Atlantic Canada is in the path of two fierce snowstorms
that are combining.
One storm hit southern Ontario and Quebec on Friday, leading to
at least three Ontario deaths - two on the roads and an 80-year-old
woman who was shovelling her driveway. The other is hammering the
northeastern United States.
Forecasters are predicting 30 to 40 centimetres of snow today for
parts of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, and up to 30 centimetres for
Prince Edward Island.
It appears Newfoundland will get off relatively lightly with up
to 25 centimetres of snow by Sunday.
Forecasters say in some parts of Atlantic Canada, the snow will
be whipped by winds of up to 100 kilometres an hour, cutting
visibility to almost zero.
Dozens of today's flights have been cancelled at Halifax
Stanfield International Airport.
