It may be spring but winter isn’t done with our area just yet. A nor’easter is expected to impact the region March 26.

Current weather models from Environment Canada indicate the storm will have a large impact on Atlantic Canada. Forecasts show the storm will begin to affect Kings County late Tuesday overnight, strengthening into Wednesday with the potential for significant snowfall accumulations, strong winds and low visibility due to localized blowing snow. 

These anticipated conditions could result in prolonged periods of power outages. Residents should ensure 72-hour emergency kits are prepared including flashlights with fresh batteries, non-perishable food, water and a first aid kit. When using candles, ensure they are never left unattended and any use of barbeques, camp stoves or generators must be done outdoors.

Tips to prepare emergency kits are available at http://novascotia.ca/emo, highway conditions are posted at http://511.gov.ns.ca and for webcams go to http://novascotia.ca/tran/cameras/.
