Rain and wind to pummel BC's south coast

Rain and wind to pummel BC's south coast”

Powerful winds in Washington State left one person dead and a second seriously injured, and knocked power out to more than 150,000 homes.

Environment Canada has issued wind and rainfall warnings for parts of the region.

Winds of between 70 and 90 kilometres per hour are forecast for the city of Vancouver, the North Shore and Metro Vancouver's southeast and southwest, including Surrey, Langley, Richmond and Delta. Environment Canada is warning the high winds may toss loose objects or cause tree branches to break.

But winds will ease overnight as the cold front moves out of the region.

Following a stormy Monday, new weather warnings are in effect today for Vancouver Island today. Rain will be heavy at times, amounting to 50 millimetres by Wednesday morning.

In Metro Vancouver, warning applies to the Coquitlam and Maple Ridge areas, as well as the North Shore.

Meanwhile, a rainfall warning has been issued from East Vancouver Island, from Nanoose Bay to Fanny Bay.

BC Hydro had extra crews on standby during the storm in case of outages, and about two dozen were reported in affected areas during the day.
