Wind, rain warnings lifted for B.C. South Coast
Winds up to 90 km/h had been expected in some areas
After four days of relentless rain, the first storm of the season has broken over B.C.'s South Coast.
Environment Canada lifted wind and rain warnings for Metro Vancouver, Howe Sound, Vancouver Island and the Sunshine coast early Friday afternoon.
Winds gusting up to 90 km/h were expected for those regions earlier Friday morning. Some areas might have received up to 50 millimetres of rainfall.
The weather agency said localized flooding was possible in low-lying areas, as were washouts near rivers, creeks and culverts.
The province is continuing high streamflow advisories for much of the South Coast. Such advisories mean river levels across much of the region are rising or expected to rise rapidly, but no major flooding is expected.
