VANCOUVER — Powerful winds and rain are pummeling British Columbia's coast as an intense storm system moves across the province this weekend.
Environment Canada issued warnings and special weather statements for the southern B.C. coast, with gusts of up to 110 kilometres per hour expected in some areas.
Vancouver Island was hit especially hard, with BC Hydro reporting over 5,700 customers were without power on Saturday afternoon.
Hundreds of homes were also in the dark in the Lower Mainland, Sunshine Coast and Interior B.C.
BC Ferries cancelled multiple sailings due to high winds, including between Comox and Powell River and between Tsawassen and Southern Gulf Islands.
Comox Valley residents were under a boil water advisory after the intense rainfall caused turbidity levels to rise in Comox Lake and the Puntledge River.
Environment Canada says 80 to 120 millimetres of rain will fall on the North Shore of Metro Vancouver and Howe Sound by Monday morning.
