Schools across Greater Victoria are closed after a second dump of snow fell across the region Tuesday night.

The Sooke School District (SD62), Saanich School District (SD63) and Greater Victoria School District (SD61) are closed Wednesday due to heavy snow, unsafe road conditions and power outages.

Snow started falling Sunday evening but Greater Victoria school districts were open Monday and Tuesday.
