High winds hammer South Coast during overnight storm

Nov 24 2016, 5:44 pm

If you were a little blown away by the high winds last night, you weren’t alone.

Strong winds hammered the South Coast, from Sea-to-Sky Country to Vancouver Island, to Tsawassen and points in between.

At it’s peak, the high winds and weather caused outages to 9,000 BC Hydro customers.

Those who who had power (or a fully charged phone) took to social media to express their thoughts on the #BCStorm.

Needless to say, BC Hydro was kept pretty busy all night long, and crews remain hard at work this morning.

And while winds seemed to have slightly eased off, we’re not out of the woods just yet.
