A powerful blizzard packing heavy snow and hurricane-force winds gusting to more than 100 km/h arrived in Southeast New Brunswick as forecasters predicted today.

In advance of the storm’s arrival, schools were closed and most businesses soon followed in Greater Moncton.

Even Champlain Place – one of the largest shopping malls in the region – shuttered its doors and city transit buses stopped operating by midday.

Environment Canada says the blizzard is moving quickly and conditions should improve by midnight as the storm heads for Newfoundland.
