In this CBC article, Dan Sharp from Davey's Victoria office, shares how an upcoming Vancouver bomb cyclone can impact local vegetation.
A large storm system passing through coastal British Columbia has already caused power outages, forced ferry cancellations and prompted wind and rainfall warnings from Environment Canada, as well as high streamflow advisories.
A "bomb cyclone" — a low-pressure system that brings rain and powerful winds — hit offshore close to Vancouver Island on Sunday, according to Environment Canada, bringing concerns for potential power outages and flooding over the next few days.
On Monday, a rainfall warning for Howe Sound said up to 65 millimetres of rain could fall in the area.
Gusts as strong as 110 km/h could blast the east coast of Haida Gwaii, while the east coast of Vancouver Island, including the Greater Victoria area is expected to see gusts up to 90 km/h close to the water on Monday morning, Environment Canada said.
Coastal areas of Metro Vancouver could experience gusts up to 70 km/h, the agency warned.
