High winds caused by the storms tearing through Vancouver uprooted a tree next to China Creek North Park on Friday, engulfing a car parked nearby.
Owner Kath Will told Daily Hive it all began when she and her husband decided to drive to their son’s daycare – something they didn’t usually do.
They left their silver Volkswagen Passat Wagon parked outside, on East 7th and Windsor, but at about 1:30 pm the storm hit and the tree went flying at their car.
Luckily, no one was inside and no one was hurt. Will, says city crews are due to remove the tree on Friday night.
Then, they’ll have to assess the damage in the morning – and hope they don’t need a tow truck to get it to the garage.
Tragically, the storm has already claimed one fatality, a teenage boy, who died when he was hit by a falling tree in Surrey on Friday.
The third storm is forecast to hit Vancouver on Saturday evening and is anticipated to be the biggest, fuelled by the remnants of Typhoon Songda.
