[sam id=”15″ codes=”true”]Strong winds that may cause damage are expected or occurring. A powerful Pacific low crossing Vancouver Island tonight will give southwest winds gusting to 90 km/h beginning this early evening.
The winds will diminish overnight as the low moves east and weakens. Damage to buildings, such as to roof shingles and windows, may occur. High winds may toss loose objects or cause tree branches to break.
Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions due to high winds.
