Snow fell in Nanaimo, BC Wednesday morning
Yet another powerful storm hammered the coast of British Columbia Wednesday, bringing powerful winds, heavy rain and snow to some communities.
Several BC ferries sailings were cancelled in the morning hours because of the strong winds.
In some sections of the province, snow has been falling. In the mountain passes, it has been accumulating steadily.
Wednesday's storm came as about 6,000 BC hydro customers on Vancouver Island were waiting for electricity to be restored from Monday's winter storm
. That day, the winds knocked down multiple trees at Vancouver's Stanley Park.
In the Interior of the province, the avalanche risk remains high. The Trans-Canada Highway had to be closed Wednesday because of a slide between Golden and Revelstoke. In the past week, two people have died as a result of avalanches
in British Columbia.
