    Background: On the 4th and 5th of March road, rail and air traffic were disrupted after one of the worst storms of the winter hit Eastern Canada and the North-eastern United States.

    The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation coverage shows the chaos in the Quebec capital Montreal, where business life and transport services were paralysed.

    Snow also fell during the last few days in Europe, in London, and unexpectedly in French riviera resorts including Nice and Cannes. But weather men say this is not really unusual. It seems bad only after a very mild winter in Europe.
