"Weather Bomb" headed for Maritimes
Forecasters are warning Maritimers to brace for another powerful storm.
The storm is expected to barrel into New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and PEI starting today.
Environment Canada says some areas could receive up to 40 centimetres of snow, with rain and possibly damaging winds added to the mix.
Much the same conditions are expected in Newfoundland, where multiple wind and winter storm warnings have been posted.
Environment Canada says the system could be stronger than the Christmas Day blast that left more than 150-thousand customers without power in Nova Scotia.
EMO is reminding you to be prepared for any type of emergency, including power outages and have everything you need for at least 72 hours after a storm.
Emergency kits should include food, water, radios, batteries, first-aid supplies and meds if needed.
In New Brunswick, it'll mostly be a snow event with high winds and a mix with freezing ice pellets for the Saint John and Moncton areas.
40 centimetres of snow is expected in the Fredericton area, starting around noontime.
The weather bomb, as it's being called will affect travel!
Bay Ferries has already cancelled their Saint John to Digby and Digby to Saint John crossings and while there may be a few flights getting out this morning, there are cancellations throughout the region for arrivals and departures this afternoon.
