Some manitoba schools remain closed in the wake of Thursday's snowstorm



Some schools and highways in southeastern Manitoba remain closed due to long-lasting effects from Thursday's snowstorm.

Students and staff in the Border Land School Division live at home because the roads in the area are still poor.

Mennonite Collegiate Institute in Gretna have canceled the classes for the day.

The snowstorm led to highway closures as driving snow-blocked paths and visibility were sometimes close to zero.

The province closed both eastern tracks on the Trans-Canada road southeast of Winnipeg from Highway 207 (Deacon's Corner) to Highway 12 due to poor winter driving conditions and a series of crashes.

The section of the highway was opened just before midnight Thursday.

Two other sections of the highway were still closed early on Friday morning. Highway 245 from Highway 244 to Carman, opens at 9 m. Highway 428 from Highway 23 to Winkler opens at 11:30 am
