Environmental Canada warned of continued snow, reducing visibility for parts of Ontario

Multiple blizzard warnings and weather warnings remain in effect in parts of Ontario after strong winds and snow caused problems across much of the province on Saturday.

Environment Canada issued a warning for areas including Barrie, Sault Ste. Marie, Peterborough, Muskoka, Grey-Bruce and Waterloo, predict as much as 40 cm will fall at some point Sunday night.

The weather agency also warned of reduced visibility due to blowing snow, with the Ontario Provincial Police's road safety division reporting several calls for collisions and vehicles in ditches due to the storm.

The Niagara area bore the brunt Saturday as a hurricane that battered Buffalo, N.Y., pushed into the northern part of the area, bringing very localized but intense snowfall.

The storm also caused multiple power outages across the province, although most customers had recovered by Saturday evening.

As of 4am, 476 Hydro One customers still did not have hydro, down from around 1,200 the previous afternoon.
