Long lines formed at grocery stores in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, on January 21 as grocery stores reopened in the city following a record-breaking blizzard.
A state of emergency remained in place as the cleanup continued after a blizzard brought a record 30 inches of snow to the city. Grocery stores were allowed to open from 10 am to 6 pm on Tuesday, with officials asking people to limit their travel and use carpooling to allow for emergency vehicles and recovery crews to operate effectively.
