The residents received medical treatment at the scene, and one was transported to a hospital in stable condition. Four residents on the upper level were able to get out and were treated at the scene.

Strong and gusty southwesterly winds are also expected to whip up the freshly falling snow, resulting in very low visibility in blowing snow. Visibility will be suddenly reduced to near zero at times in heavy snow and blowing snow.

Motorists should expect hazardous winter driving conditions today and change travel plans accordingly.

Snow squall watches are issued when conditions are favourable for the formation of bands of snow that could produce intense accumulating snow or near zero visibilities.
