A SERIOUS WINTER STORM UNDERWAY IN CANADA
Conditions are treacherous on the 402 near the town of Sarnia in south western Ontario. Close to 300 people are stranded in their cars. Some have been trapped overnight as snow squalls, driving winds and plunging temperatures make for dangerous conditions for rescuers.
The military has been called out to assist with the rescue and helicopters are lifting people in baskets from this desolate white-out scene. If conditions don't improve soon, snowmobiles, ATVs and heavy trucks will be added to the rescue operation.
