Niagarans waking up to a winter wonderland and a long list of closures and cancellations

The winter weather warning continues for Niagarab and that means no school for kids across the region.

The DSBN and Niagara Catholic closing schools today along with their administrative headquarters.

Brock University has delayed opening until 10 am today and Niagara Colelge is closed although it is reading week and students are off
Elective surgery at the St Catharines hospital site cancelled today

Those are just a few, among the growing list of closures today, across Niagara

If you are heading out this morning major roads are snowcovered and slippery in sections and you will also find most side streets a disaster. 

Heavy snow is clogging our side streets and making for a tricky drive.

Ploughs and sanders are out but it will be a while before they play catch up.

We are also getting word of some sporadic power outages as heavy snow brings down power lines

Alectra reporting an outage from Highway 406 to Welland Canals Parkway, and another in the Hastings and Walnut  Street area, both in St Catharines, power should be restored by 8 am.
