A heavy snowfall over New Brunswick has prompted a local state of emergency in Saint John. The storm dumped 29 centimetres of snow on the city -- adding to the almost 100 centimetres already on the ground. Mayor Mel Norton says the state of emergency allows the city to impose a parking ban to allow crews to try to clear the snow from narrow streets. (Norton says the major concern is ensuring that emergency vehicles have access to homes and businesses. A storm forecast for Thursday night could bring another 15 to 25 centimetres of snow to southern New Brunswick.)
