Between February 18 and 19, 2004, just five months after Hurricane Juan, Canada's east coast was hit by a strong Nor'easter nicknamed "White Juan".

The blizzard dumped huge amounts of snow across the Atlantic provinces. Wind gusts of up to 120 km/h were recorded in some locations - and snowfall totals in some areas were almost a metre high.

A province-wide state of emergency was declared in Nova Scotia.

Halifax imposed traffic curfews in the days following the storm to help with the massive clean up.
