RECORD-BREAKING SNOWFALL SNOW AS HIGH AS ROOFS IN CANADIAN B.C.


The small B.C. towns of Kitimat and Terrace are burrowing out from a record snowfall after receiving nearly two metres of snow from a Pineapple Express weather system that continues to bring heavy moisture to the B.C. coast.
The former record for a 24-hour snowfall, set on Feb. 5, 1961, was 112 cm.
Heavy snowfall and power outages resulted in the cancellation of all flights into the Kitimat-Terrace airport Friday. 
Crews worked on restoring power overnight, but hundreds of customers were still without power by noon Saturday.  
The District of Kitimat opened its Emergency Operations Centre to coordinate a major snow clearing effort involving municipal crews and private contractors.
By midday Saturday, the district announced it had cleared many of the main roads, but side streets were still plugged.
However, fallen trees and downed power lines prevented snow removal on Kitamat Village Road which by midday Saturday still remained closed.
