Commuters Drive Through Snow 'Tunnel' in Newfoundland

Commuters in St John’s, Newfoundland, were confronted with a snow “tunnel” while driving through the city on January 21.

Local woman Holly Ivany-Ryan captured this video of the bizarre journey commuters undertook through walls of snow, following a record-breaking blizzard in the region. Referring to the dense snow as “snowmageddon,” Ivany-Ryan posted her footage to Twitter.

A state of emergency was lifted in St John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador on January 24, after the blizzard had buried some areas under 76 centimeters of snow the previous week.

Officials announced free public transportation would be in place until February 7 in an effort to keep cars off the roads as recovery efforts continued. Credit: Holly Ivany-Ryan via Storyful
