The Weather Network – LAST HOUR – The powerful storm is at the gates of Quebec

Quebec awaits the storm

The intense low pressure system raging in the United States is heading towards Quebec. Already, authorities have announced that many educational institutions will be closed on Friday. There are four deaths south of the border, power outages, accidents and a rarely seen sudden cooling. Weather alerts abound a few hours before the onset of rainfall. Snow and winter storm warnings affect most of the province.

Here’s how to prepare for a power outage.

Vigorous vortex

Parts of the United States have already felt the pressure of this descent of arctic air. While the mercury has dropped to -53°C in the Northwest Territories, the vortex is raging all the way to Texas. The American Midwest is greatly affected by cold temperatures. In Kansas City, it was -20 ° C this Thursday afternoon, unusually cold. On the Denver, Colorado side, a drop of 14°C in seven minutes was observed.


Prevent the worst

Authorities in several regions of Quebec are preparing for the worst. Even in Montreal, the CSSDM announced the closure of its educational establishments for students and all staff on Friday. Remember that heavy snow, strong winds, squalls and intense cold are expected on Friday and Saturday.
