Fierce storm rattles south coast
If you weren't woken up by the wind rattling your windows last night, you almost certainly saw the aftermath today. Flooded streets, power outages, and fallen trees are all over Metro Vancouver after a major storm swept through the region. Alissa Thibault has more on the fallout – Nov 11, 2023

The first B.C. South Coast storm of the season knocked out power for tens of thousands of residents and damaged a Hullo vessel, causing the company to cancel all weekend sailings.

Hullo said weather damage has temporarily sidelined one of its vessels, while its other vessel was already out of service for pre-planned dry dock work.

All sailings between Nanaimo and Vancouver on Nov. 11 and 12 were cancelled.
