Newfoundland is in a state of emergency after a record-breaking blizzard hit the region.
A record 76.2 centimetres of snow fell at the St. John’s International Airport.
On Friday 69 centimetres fell, which beat a one-day snowfall record from April 1999 when 68.4 centimetres fell.
Officials urged residents to stay off the roads and stay inside.
65 cm later, it’s hard to believe there’s 2 SUVs and an Elantra in there. Feelin like we’ll never get dug out from under this one! #shareyourweather #nlwx #nltraffic #Newfoundland #yyt pic.twitter.com/VS1niSovfK— Andrea (@Andrea_EE2) January 18, 2020
