  • Blizzard warning posted in North Dakota amid fall snowstorm

A potent system will move in beginning Thursday, threatening heavy snow and treacherous travel. One (0.3 meter) to 2 feet (0.6 meters) of snow was expected to accumulate with winds gusting up to 65 miles per hour (105 kph).

The Trans-Canada Highway between Winnipeg and Brandon was closed Friday morning as visibility and road condition worsened. While the utility has already restored thousands of customers, as of 10 am Friday over 37,000 customers, including more than 26,000 in Winnipeg, remain without electricity.

"This is a major weather event", said in a statement Scott Powell, a spokesperson for Manitoba Hydro.

"We're telling our customers in Winnipeg and in rural Manitoba if you're without power you now have to be prepared for an extended outage, which is going into (Saturday) and perhaps Sunday", he said.

Downed trees, branches and power lines played havoc with city streets.

The National Weather Service issued a blizzard warning for northern North Dakota and winter storm warnings and watches elsewhere in the state and into parts of South Dakota and Minnesota through Saturday afternoon.

Owen said it was a attractive fall day and just minutes later a full blizzard hit. We are also seeing equipment failures due to tree contact, and failures due to wet snow sticking to insulators.

Downed lines can pose considerable danger as they may still be energized. "To take these pictures they're getting too close", he said. "They're also getting too close to trees that are next to a live power line". If the current weather forecast holds, he told Boston.com, we'll "see a longer season than last year, we'd see a more vibrant season than last year, and it would come on a little earlier than last year, which was so late".

Kubinec noted the storm hadn't hit the entire province and there were areas where snow didn't fall.

"They are still able to do field work and some producers are still combining today".
