Drivers stuck along major Toronto-area highways as historic winter storm blasts southern Ontario

Global News published this video item, entitled “Drivers stuck along major Toronto-area highways as historic winter storm blasts southern Ontario” – below is their description.

Thousands of drivers out along Toronto-area highways are stuck in snow as a historic winter storm blasts southern Ontario on Monday morning.

In the morning, OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt said drivers were stuck in a standstill along Highway 401 eastbound around Keele Street and urged drivers to stay home.

“The biggest problem right now is the plows are stuck in this as well,” Schmidt said. “They can’t clear the highways, and you’re not going anywhere … if you’re stuck in traffic, you might be here a while.”

Environment Canada put Toronto, Peel York, Durham, Halton, Hamilton, and Niagara regions under a “blizzard” warning. That warning has since been lifted.
