Winds gust in N.L., Maritimes clean up after nor'easter blows through region

HALIFAX – It’s a cleanup day in much of Atlantic Canada as snow dumped by the nor’easter is being plowed, shovelled and blown from the streets and highways.

Meanwhile, winds were still strong early today in eastern Newfoundland, with Environment Canada reporting gusts of up to 90 kilometres per hour along the coast.

Environment Canada said a total of 50 centimetres of snow fell on Gander over the weekend, while St. John’s received 22 centimetres.

On Nova Scotia’s south shore, the owners of several coastal properties are assessing the damage caused by tidal surges and strong winds that topped 150 kilometres per hour at the height of the storm.

The blizzard paralyzed travel in much of the region before easing on Sunday.

However, airports in St. John’s and Halifax are only reporting a few flight delays early today.
