Moncton Snow dump site 2015 SHORT version

Massive snow pile in Moncton, N.B. as seen from a drone

Tuesday, March 10, 2015, 8:14 AM - Nearly 400 cm of snow has fallen in Moncton, N.B. since November -- and that's contributed to some pretty hefty snow piles.

Case in point: A YouTube video uploaded by user corbou2000 features a drone flying 200 feet above a snow dump site on Berry Mills Road in Moncton earlier this month (you can see it up above).

The pile is massive, made up of snow removed from city streets over the past few months.

That's just the short version. Corbou2000 posted a longer one initially:

Atlantic Canada has been hit with storm after storm this year, leading to potentially record-breaking snowfall amounts in some communities.

But Moncton isn't the only city that's had to contend with impressive snow piles this year.

In February, officials south of the border in Portland, Maine were forced to open a second primary snow dump after the first pile nearly breached the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) height limit.

The FAA requires obstructions close to jetports to be a maximum of 56 feet high.
