A wind warning issued in Metro Vancouver on Tuesday resulted in widespread power outages and gusts of over 90 km/h in some areas.

Late in the afternoon, BC Hydro said about 36,000 customers remain without power, primarily in Langley and Surrey as well as Courtenay and Port Hardy on Vancouver Island.

“Due to the extensive damage, some customers are expected to be without power overnight,” BC Hydro said in a release.

And while residents were advised to seek shelter and stay safe, some also took the opportunity to capture videos of the high winds across the region.
