Eastbound snowstorm batters Toronto
by UPI

TORONTO - An unusual two-pronged winter storm wreaked havoc Wednesday morning in Toronto as the storm tracked eastward toward northern U.S. states.

The national Environment Canada weather agency described the storm in a release as "particularly complex" as its two fronts were alternately delivering freezing rain or heavy snow throughout southern Ontario.

The Globe and Mail newspaper said some 200 flights were either canceled or delayed at Toronto's Lester B. Pearson International Airport, where 5 inches of snow fell in a short time before sunrise.

Ontario Provincial Police reported scores of highway accidents, including several jack-knifed tractor trailers that slowed the morning commute to a crawl, the Toronto Star said.

The city had a midmorning lull after the first front passed but watches and warnings were posted throughout Southern Ontario to expect more heavy snow or freezing rain Wednesday.
