Kings RCMP kept busy dur­ing Feb. 13 bliz­zard

Valley Journal Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

Po­lice in Kings County were called to res­cue mo­torists sev­eral times dur­ing the Feb. 13 bliz­zard.

Kings Dis­trict RCMP spokesper­son Kelli Gaudet said 30 of the 44 calls for ser­vice that came in be­tween 8 a.m. Feb. 13 and 8 a.m. Feb. 14. were re­lated to the weather.

“They were mainly stranded mo­torists or mi­nor col­li­sions, which were in no spe­cific lo­ca­tion,” said Gaudet, who added that there were no re­ports of se­ri­ous in­juries.

Sev­eral alerts were is­sued to the pub­lic ask­ing for non-es­sen­tial travel to be post­poned dur­ing the bliz­zard, which brought 61 cen­time­tres of snow to Green­wood alone.
