Blizzard brought snow, wind prompting school closures across parts of New Brunswick

A winter storm swept across southern and eastern New Brunswick on Wednesday, initiating a patchwork of school closures, flight delays and cancellations and causing whiteout conditions on some roads.

The worst of the storm ended around 8 p.m. 

All schools in the Anglophone South and Anglophone East school districts were closed for the day.

In Anglophone North school district, schools in Miramichi and Rexton closed.

Schools also were closed Wednesday in the Francophone South school district, except those in Fredericton and Oromocto.

The other three school districts were open as usual.

The nor'easter prompted Environment Canada to issue a blizzard warning for areas along the shore of the Bay of Fundy and for areas along the Northumberland Strait, south of Miramichi.
