Ferry ser­vice re­sumes, but power still out

The Province - - NEWS -

Ferry ser­vice has re­sumed on two routes be­tween Tsawwassen and Van­cou­ver Is­land af­ter high winds can­celled sail­ings on Mon­day.

Pow­er­ful winds that bat­tered Van­cou­ver Is­land and B.C.’s South Coast have eased, but wind warn­ings re­main up for much of the Is­land, the Fraser Val­ley, Metro Van­cou­ver, the Sun­shine Coast and South­ern Gulf Is­lands.

En­vi­ron­ment Canada says strong winds from 70 to 90 km/h were ex­pected to ease by Mon­day evening.

B.C. Hy­dro’s web­site showed sev­eral thou­sand cus­tomers were in the dark across the Is­land by mid-af­ter­noon as that re­gion bore the brunt of the storm.

B.C. Fer­ries re­sumed can­celled sail­ings on two routes be­tween Tsawwassen and the Is­land in the early af­ter­noon, while the south­ern Gulf Is­lands’ route was run­ning. Pas­sen­gers were urged to check with B.C. Fer­ries on­line or through its toll-free num­ber for fur­ther up­dates.
