NBers clean up after storm

New Brunswickers are dealing today with the aftermath of massive winter storm that has caused havoc across the province.

The storm cut a path through New Brunswick yesterday bringing with it snow, ice pellets and freezing rains.

Some areas in Northern New Brunswick received as much as 50 cm of snow.

That forced the closure of several roads and highways in the province.

Even on roads that were open, authorities were pleading with motorists to stay home and wait out the storm.

Several accidents were reported province wide.

The wind also lead to power outages, while businesses across the province shut their doors early.

In the Saint John area, rain and iced pellets lead to flooding and icy roads. The storm stranded around 100 Skate Canada skaters and officials who were in the port city for the national championships.

Locally, we are expecting another 5 cm of snow and ice pellets today, with some blowing snow as well, but Environment Canada has lifted Winter Storm warning.

However, there is a statement in place warning of higher than normal water levels along the coast.
