It may seem a bit early for snow in Southeast New Brunswick, but a cold rain turned white in the region today making for a winter wonderland in some rural areas.

Environment Canada reports that some parts of western and northern New Brunswick actually saw several centimetres of the white stuff.

The long range forecast calls for skies to clear and warmer temperatures by later this week.

Super Typhoon Haiyan devastates Philippines

More than 4,000 residents have been killed and many more injured after Typhoon Haiyan swept through the central Philippines on Friday devastating Tacloban City.

Aid is pouring in from around the world including supplies and doctors but the challenges of delivering the assistance means few have received help so far.

Tacloban City, with 225,000 on Leyte island, bore the full force of the winds and the tsunami-like storm surges.

Most of the city is in ruins, a tangled mess of destroyed homes, cars and trees while malls, garages and shops have all been stripped of food and water by hungry residents.
