Train brings food supplies to Manitoba town cut off by blizzard
Store shelves in the town were left almost empty after a series of blizzards cut off supplies.
A storm on Sunday brought more snow and winds of up to 90 kilometres an hour.
A plane was supposed to bring food into the community that day, but was unable to land because of the high winds and zero visibility.
On Monday morning, OmniTrax, the company that owns the local railway, cleared the latest snow off the tracks and brought in a train carrying milk, vegetables, bread and meat.
Deputy mayor Shane Hutchins told CTV Winnipeg he doesn’t think the town could have gone much longer without supplies.
