Today’s forecast calls for rain, with a chance of flurries for a short period this afternoon. Looking ahead, temperatures will be rising.
Yesterday’s storm still has several lingering effects.
- The Sooke School District is not running school buses. Schools are open though.
- BC Transit is not servicing East Sooke via Route 64. Route 63 is not running. Route 61 (which didn’t do the Sooke loop yesterday) appears to be running as usual. That said, BC Transit says to expect buses to be late.
- Camosun College, who closed yesterday, are open today.
DriveBC is showing that West Coast Road is closed towards Jordan River, due to downed wires. The following was posted last night and has not been updated: “Highway 14, in both directions. Downed hydro lines between Waters Edge Dr and Jordan River Recsite for 1.5 km (Jordan River). Road closed. No detour available, No Estimated Time of Opening.”
