The heaviest band of snow and ice pellets from the Nor’easter was in central and Southeast New Brunswic

By the time the precipitation tapered off this afternoon, Greater Moncton had recorded 32 cm, Saint John had 21 cm and CFB Gagetown had the highest total in the province at 37 cm.

Thousands lost power as the wet, heavy snow brought down trees and power lines.

Schools were closed and many businesses had delayed openings as crews began snow clearing operations.
