The big melt hit Stanley Bridge late Tuesday night and early Wednesday (Jan. 25) morning. Across the Island heavy winds and freezing rain clinging to power lines and turning roads, laneways and driveways into skating rinks caused power outages for more than 1,100 Maritime Electric customers, most in central and western PEI. Parts of the Rattenbury were flooded with melting water, while a fresh coat of ice was added to the Stanley River.
Schools, public events and gatherings were cancelled all across the Island today.
