Transit buses for the City of Kenora won't be running tomorrow, and daycare centres at Ecole Ste-Marguerite Bourgeoys and Pope John Paul II will also be closed.

The before and after school programs run by Firefly at St. Louis School are also cancelled for tomorrow.

Similarly, the FIREFLY offices and all FIREFLY child care programs will be closed for the day tomorrow, due to the weather.

However, the KACL offices and their KidZone location in Lakeside will remain open.

"Due to the extreme winter storm that we are facing, the decision has been made to remove the city transit from operation tomorrow morning," said city clerk Heather Kasprick in an email.

"The City apologizes for this inconvenience, however, the snow and blowing winds are expected to continue throughout the night making the roads a challenge for the City transit," she continued. "The transit service will resume just as soon as it is safe for the bus to resume operation."

The closures follow the announcement earlier this evening that school buses, as well as schools, will not be operating tomorrow.
