Nor’easter nails NB with rain, snow

Snowy pumpkin Riverside-Albert, NB, 31 Oct 2011 (TWN)

The storm dubbed “Snowtober” moved into New Brunswick yesterday after pounding the U.S. Northeast with record amounts of snow.

While mostly snow fell in western New Brunswick with up to 20 cm recorded in some areas, mostly rain fell in eastern New Brunswick with up to 50 mm falling near the Northumberland Strait coastline.

Roads became slushy and that proved deadly – RCMP say three people died when their vehicle crashed Sunday near Rogersville.

Greater Moncton Airport recorded a whopping 45.6 mm of rain and 6.6 cm of snow.
