Environment Canada says wind could hit 100 km/h

If you are out and about in Mission today, keep your eyes peeled.

Debris has been reported flying around in the high winds.

Siding has come off buildings, eavestroughs have come down, even the roof of the Bellevue Hotel downtown has been damaged.

Power is out in many areas as the winds continue to howl.

BC Hydro has sent crews to many sites.

According to a weather warning from Environment Canada, the Fraser Valley area can expect “very strong wind gusts that may cause damage.”

“A powerful low pressure system is making landfall near central Vancouver Island then across the mainland coast this afternoon.

Sustained southeast winds of 70 to 90 km/h have already developed through this morning over much of the south coast and will remain at that intensity for the next couple of hours. Winds will switch to southwesterly 70 to 90 km/h early this afternoon, with stronger gusts likely above 100 km/h. Winds will ease early this evening.”
