In this iheart radio article, Matthew Coady, market manager of the Island of British Columbia, Canada, shares about the dangers trees may face during the upcoming hind wind event in Vancouver.
A special weather statement is in effect for Metro Vancouver due to a fall storm expected to bring strong winds and heavy rain, and residents are being warned to brace for falling branches and potential power outages.
According to Environment and Climate Change Canada, winds of up to 70 km/h are forecasted to batter the region Monday.
"Loose objects may be tossed by the wind and cause injury or damage. High winds may result in power outages and fallen tree branches," the statement from the weather agency says.
Officials also say they expect between 10 and 20 millimetres of rain.
Because trees have not yet lost their leaves, ECCC says the impact of the fall storm will likely be significant.
