The hardest-hit areas this weekend were in the Lower Mainland and Sunshine Coast, along with southern Vancouver Island. This storm occurred less than two months after the disastrous wind storm on December 20, 2018, which left 750,000 BC Hydro customers without power, with many left without electricity for multiple days.

"Crews will be working around the clock until everyone is back, and individual restoration times will be provided as available", BC Hydro explained.

"There have been some challenges that we have encountered due to the extent of the damage and some of the access areas", he says.

Environment Canada is asking the public to be ready to adjust their driving with changing road conditions.

On Vancouver Island, downed trees and power lines are causing blockages along Hwy 14.

There is also a possibility of up to 10 centimetres of snow falling in B.C.'s southwest.
