Snow Storm Information (updated)

Residents are urged to stay informed by following regular news outlets, visiting the Halifax Snow Event website, and following @hfxgov on twitter.

If you see something that requires municipal response, please call 311, rather than call, email, or tweet me or the council office!  We just turn around and call 311 on your behalf, slowing down response.  Always call 311 first!

Update from HRM at 7:30 am:

Actual snowfall was less than forecasted amounts overnight. Snowfall varies from 8-12cms depending on elevation and proximity to the ocean.
