new year’s eve ice storm

Skating on icy Moncton streets, 31 Dec 2011 (TWN)

Greater Moncton had to endure several hours of freezing rain and ice pellets on New Year’s Eve before the precipitation changed to rain.

The icy conditions turned streets and sidewalks into skating rinks sending vehicles into ditches and residents tumbling with numerous falls reported.

Environment Canada reports 9.6 mm of rain and freezing precipitation fell yesterday as well as a trace of snow.
