21 Wild And Windy Photos From The #BCSTORM

Hang on to your umbrella – it’s been a wild one! With the latest wind storm hammering the region overnight and into the morning, thousands are without power in Metro Vancouver, Fraser Valley, Sunshine Coast and Vancouver Island.

In the aftermath be sure to watch out for downed trees or power lines and other debris on the roads and sidewalks as well as flooded areas.

The public is being urged to stay away from shorelines; waves as high as 5ft were reported in the Boundary Bay Area and wind gusts of over 90km/h across Vancouver.  An Emergency Operations Centre has been activated in Delta due to windstorm flooding.

It is NOT letting up! #bcstorm
