Storm’s 1 Year Anniversary

Manitoba Post StaffNews

WINNIPEG – This weekend marks one year since that unprecedented October storm hammered our city.

Freezing rain, winds up to 80 kilometres and hour, dropping temperatures and as much as 35 centimetres of snow all combined to create conditions that Winnipeggers will remember for a long time.

It hit just before Thanksgiving, leaving in its wake more than 50,000 Winnipeg residents without power, 30,000 trees on public property damaged and a local state of emergency declared.

The storm carried with it a price tag of about $10 million.
