Newly-released figures from Environment Canada are shedding light on the magnitude of Newfoundland‘s historic blizzard.

Many communities in the eastern part of the province have been at a near standstill since Friday when powerful winds and record-breaking snowfall prompted states of emergency.

The highest snowfall measurements were taken in areas just outside St. John’s, data from Environment Canada shows.

The city of Mount Pearl, which neighbours the capital city, received 93 centimetres of snow, while the town of Paradise received 91 cm.

At St. John’s International Airport, 76.2 cm fell. That’s the highest daily snowfall measured at the airport since at least 1942, when record-keeping began. (An additional two cm fell after 2:30 a.m., bringing the storm’s overall total to 78 cm)

The previous airport snowfall record of 68.4 cm dates back to April 5, 1999.

Towards the centre of the province, the storm was far less severe. The town of Gander received 35 cm of snow, according to a measurement taken at the airport.

In addition to the snowfall, forecasters also warned of powerful winds and storm surges.

Environment Canada says the highest wind gust of the storm was 171 km/h, measured on tiny Green Island off Fortune Bay near the French islands of Saint Pierre and Miquelon.

By comparison, sustained winds of 119 km/h and beyond are considered hurricane force.

In St. John’s, measurements taken at various locations put maximum wind gusts in the range of 105 km/h to 134 km/h.

Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Dwight Ball said the storm was “historic.”

“It’s having a profound impact on residents,” he said in an interview with Global News on Saturday.

Given the high levels of snowfall — Ball said there were some cases of snowdrifts as high as 15 feet — the extent of the damage is not known at this point.

Photos posted to social media showed snowdrifts large enough to fully engulf cars and block doorways.

A few residents even used the steep streets of downtown St. John’s for skiing and snowboarding.

Canadian Forces members were headed to the island Sunday to provide support and help the province dig out after Ball made a request for federal assistance on Saturday.

Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan said it was likely that 150 to 200 Canadian Forces personnel would be on the ground by the end of the day.

“This could surge up to anywhere between 250 to 300 by tomorrow and the coming days,” he told reporters in Winnipeg.

St. John’s and some surrounding communities remain under states of emergency since Friday.

While all businesses were ordered to shut down and all non-emergency vehicles banned from St. John’s roads, the city is now allowing gas stations and pharmacies to open. Private plow drivers are also allowed to operate.

St. John’s International Airport has announced it remains closed for commercial flights until at least Monday night.

One man, 26-year-old Joshua Wall, has been missing since Friday in the area of Roaches Line, about 70 kilometres west of St. John’s.

Prince Harry speaks out about decision to step back from royal roles ‘with great sadness’ – Global News

January 19th, 2020

Prince Harry broke his silence and directly addressed his and his wife’s decision to step back from the Royal Family, in a speech delivered Sunday at a charity dinner in the U.K.

“Before I begin, I must say that I can only imagine what you may have heard or perhaps read of the past few weeks,” he says in a video clip of his speech posted to the official Instagram account for him and his wife Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

The 35-year-old prince is referring to their decision to no longer be working members of the Royal Family and to no longer use their royal titles — news that sparked headlines and analysis around the world.

A statement Saturday from Buckingham Palace confirmed the couple will be required to “step back from Royal duties, including official military appointments,” and will no longer receive public funds for royal duties.

“Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much-loved members of my family,” the Queen said in the statement. “I recognize the challenges they have experienced as a result of intense scrutiny over the last two years and support their wish for a more independent life.”

In a statement last week, the Queen had said that Harry and Meghan will be splitting their time between the U.K. and Canada, after they had announced they were stepping down from their duties as official senior members of the Royal Family.

The almost eight-minute-long video clip posted on Sunday shows Harry standing at a podium, at a dinner for supporters of Sentebale in London, U.K. Sentebale is a charity he co-founded in 2006.

“I want you to hear the truth from me, as much as I can share, not as a prince or a duke but as Harry,” the prince says. “The same person that many of you have watched grow up over the last 35 years. But now with a clearer perspective.”

Harry goes on to say that he loves the United Kingdom: “The U.K. is my home and a place that I love. That will never change.”

“I’ve grown up feeling supported from so many of you and I watched as you welcomed Meghan with open arms, as you saw me find the love and happiness that I’d hoped for all my life.”

He manages to make the audience laugh: “Finally, the second son of Diana got hitched. Hurray.”

“I also know that you’ve come to know me well enough over all these years to trust that the woman I chose as my wife upholds the same values as I do,” Harry says. “And she does. And she’s the same woman I fell in love with. We both do everything we can to fly the flag and carry out our roles for this country with pride.”

Harry says both he and Markle were “excited” once they got married back in May 2018.

“We were hopeful and we were here to serve,” he says. “For those reasons, it brings me great sadness that it has come to this.”

He says the decision he made “for my wife and I to step back” was not made lightly.

“There was so many months of talks after so many years of challenges,” Harry says. “And I know I haven’t always gotten it right but as far as this goes, there really was no other option.”

But the two aren’t “walking away,” he adds.

“Our hope was to continue serving the Queen, the Commonwealth and my military associations but without public funding,” Harry says.

“Unfortunately, that wasn’t possible. I’ve accepted this, knowing that it doesn’t change who I am or how committed I am. But I hope that helps you understand what it had come to, that I would step my family back from all I have ever known, to take a step forward into what I hope can be a more peaceful life.”

He also talked about the media being a “powerful force.”

“My hope is one day our collective support for each other can be more powerful,” Harry says. “Because this is so much bigger than just us.”

He also mentions that his son Archie — less than a year old — saw snow for the first time “the other day and thought it was bloody brilliant,” garnering another laugh from the audience.

“I will always have the utmost respect for my grandmother, my commander-in-chief, and I am incredibly grateful to her and the rest of my family for the support they have shown Meghan and I over the last few months,” Harry says.

“I will continue to be the same man who holds his country dear and dedicates his life to supporting the causes, charities and military communities that are so important to me.”

“We are taking a leap of faith so thank you for giving me the courage to take this next step.”
