Ferry service resumes, but power still out
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.
