Strong winds create blowing snow in NE Moncton, 09 Feb 2016 (Dearing)


Snow and strong winds from a powerful Nor’easter finally tapered off in Southeast New Brunswick this evening.

During a 36 hour period, Environment Canada reported strong winds in Greater Moncton at times gusting as high as 74 km/h.

The snow was light yesterday and became heavier by early this morning but in the end less than 20 cm had accumulated.

Nova Scotia took a bigger pounding as blizzard warnings were posted across the province and almost 50 cm of snow fell in Halifax and eastern Cape Breton Island.
