Clean up continues across eastern Newfoundland as nearly 100 cm of snow falls

Residents of the Avalon Peninsula continue to clean up from a ferocious storm that brought close to 100 cm of snow to some areas.

All alerts except one have ended. There is a winter storm warning for the Avalon Peninsula Southeast. Snow and blowing snow continue with 5 cm more expected and wind gusts to 100 km/h near Cape Race. Conditions will improve this afternoon.

Driving conditions remain poor across the Avalon and the road from Branch to North Harbour and from the Trans-Canada Highway to Witless Bay is closed.

The walk-in clinic at 50 Mundy Pond Road in St. John’s will reopen today at 1:00 p.m.

Eastern-Urban and Eastern-Rural zone hospitals, long-term care facilities, and other sites with 24-hour operations remain open, and emergency services continue to be available. In addition, dialysis treatment centres located at Mount Pearl Square and Coish Place in Clarenville are open.

All city facilities in St. John's will remain closed for the remainder of the day. This includes recreation facilities and the residential drop off at Robin Hood Bay.
