Halifax Regional Police remind citizens to use extreme caution during the current weather event that we are experiencing.
Unusually high winds coupled with a rainfall warning has been causing havoc at numerous locations across HRM. Please remember that this wind has caused the fresh leaves to fall, causing it to be very slippery on the roadways and the pooling water is causing hydroplaning.
