Spring Storms Bring Record Snow to Newfoundland Town

Spring snowstorms in Newfoundland have left record accumulations in some areas. In Gander, heavy falls between April 2 and 4 left more the seven feet of snow in parts.

Rodney Barney at the Gander Weather Office told CBC on April 4, “Right now we have over 200 centimetres of snow on the ground, the snow depth is 223 centimetres, and that’s a brand new record, an all-time record.”
