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.
