The city is slowly digging out after being blasted with more than 30 centimetres of snow overnight.

Thousands of people in the Quebec City area are without power and nearly all the schools in the greater Montreal area are closed due to weather.

The Société de transport de Montréal (STM) is running behind this morning as multiple buses are stuck in the snow and drivers have  been unable to get into work.
