It’s a good night to stay home because several of Vancouver’s outdoor attractions are closed due to the wind storm.

The Vancouver Park Board tweeted that the strong winds pose a risk to visitors in Stanley Park due to falling branches and the chance of falling trees.

The closure includes the entire Seawall and Bright Nights Christmas Train.

As well, VanDusen Garden is closed to the public. The Festival of Lights is expected to stay open until 4:30 pm.

The Bloedel Conservatory has also announced that its Holiday Heights event will be closing early at 6 pm tonight.

As of 4 pm, BC Hydro says about 335,000 customers remain without power in the Lower Mainland, Fraser Valley, Sunshine Coast and on Vancouver Island.

The service said that some customers should expect their power to remain out overnight as they try to restore hundreds of outages across the region.
