All ferry crossings between Newfoundland and the mainland today and tonight have been scrubbed as high winds continue to plague the island.
The wind and snow resulted in school and other closures on the west coast, Northern Peninsula, Southern Avalon and the Burin Peninsula today. Corner Brook Transit will return to service at 1:00, after buses were pulled off the road for the morning due to poor conditions.
CNA is closing its Prince Philip Drive campus due to damage sustained to the front of the building due to high winds. As such, the child care facility is also closing for the day.
The TCH at the Spillway was closed this morning but has since reopened. Tractor trailers should stay out of the Wreckhouse.
Winds will remain high just about everywhere. The winds kicked in on Friday and will persist for the next couple of days. They were gusting to over 100 km/h in the eastern part of the island, blowing a tractor trailer off the road on the Burin Peninsula Highway yesterday.
It’s also stormy in Labrador with many road closures and advisories out.
High winds on the 210 highway, Burin peninsula. Tractor trailer tipped over just outside Red Harbour. #nltrafffic @TelyPhotoGosse @MYSTVolFireDept @VOCMNEWS @CBCNL @OfficialOZFM pic.twitter.com/u7uKsYp6Ab
