Heavy snow sweeps across Toronto area, causing traffic chaos


Toronto was hit with a blast of winter weather on Wednesday after weeks of relatively mild temperatures.

Environment Canada issued a snowfall warning for Canada’s largest city, saying total accumulations of between 15 and 20 cm were possible. The agency also warned of potential power outages, adding the storm was expected to end Thursday morning.

Police said they had responded to about 40 collisions as of Wednesday evening, as the snow made for slick road conditions.

“The car’s off. It’s been off for 30 minutes,” one person said as they waited amid the traffic congestion created by poor driving conditions.
