The intense snowfall that brought St. John's and many other communities to a standstill slowed overnight and according to Environment Canada was expected to end later Saturday morning.

At the peak of the storm, which some described as being like a blizzard in a hurricane, even snowplows were pulled off roads due to near zero visibility conditions.
