Earlier this week, a major winter storm covered parts of Canada, interrupting travel and shutting off electricity for thousands of homes.

According to a report, Ottawa, which was under a blizzard alert Monday, experienced almost 19 inches (48 centimeters) of snowfall, Environment Canada said. Ottawa paramedics thanked an eight-year-old boy for saving an elderly man practically buried in snow Monday.

“The gentleman was almost all covered due to the huge snowfall when Clayton spotted him & notified his parents who activated 9-1-1,” the paramedic service tweeted with a photo of the boy.

The accumulation of snow slowed down late Monday night, warnings of winter storms that affected the majority of the province of Ontario have been lifted, but snow squalls and warnings for extreme cold were in effect.

Toronto witnessed almost nearly a foot (29 centimeters) of snow. Ottawa barred vehicles from parking on streets in winter to let snowplows clean the city. Numerous schools were closed, and school buses weren’t operating in Quebec and in the south of Ontario, which includes the Toronto area.
