Blast of early winter knocks out power, cripples southern Manitoba

Thousands of homes and businesses in Manitoba were without power Friday as a severe snow storm blanketed southern parts of the province, knocking down trees, shutting down highways and forcing school closures. One (0.3 meter) to 2 feet (0.6 meters) of snow was expected to accumulate with winds gusting up to 65 miles per hour (105 kph).

The Trans-Canada Highway between Brandon and Winnipeg is entirely closed.

The province's electrical utility said crews were working feverishly to restore power to over 37,000 customers, including more than 26,000 in Winnipeg.

Hydro is also warning Manitobans to say away from downed power lines.

Brandon is now under a winter storm warning from Environment Canada.

"We've still got a lot of foliage on our trees and ... the wet snow clings to the foliage", Owen said.

Two people were injured in Winnipeg Friday as a Colorado low continued to pound the city - including one person taken to hospital in critical condition after a tree branch fell on them.

Klopfer did not follow IN law for disposal of the fetal remains and the filing of the proper paperwork, Glasgow said. The Fort Wayne clinic closed in 2014, and the Gary and South Bend clinics closed the next year.

Owen had a warning for individuals eager to record the storm and post it on social media.

In an effort to streamline calls and try and minimize wait times, Hydro is asking customers to only call the Contact Centre in the event of a downed line or other emergency.

An official with Manitoba Agriculture said the storm wasn't expected to have a major impact on farmers.

Anastasia Kubinec, the manager of Crop Industry Development, said about 70 per cent of crops has already been harvested, the quality is very good and yields have been average to above average.

"We'll have to see how things go".

"As of this morning we are no longer able to provide estimated times for restoration (ETRs) on our outages due to the extremely high volume of calls we are receiving and the continuing deterioration of the weather and roads", Powell said.
