Haida Gwaii could see winds up to 110 km/hr on Wednesday

The west coast of British Columbia continues to be hit by high winds that could cause damage, as Haida Gwaii is the latest location to be issued a public weather warning.

Environment and Climate Change Canada issued a wind warning for the region Wednesday morning, alerting people to the possibility of wind speeds reaching as high as 110 km/h in the coastal areas of Haida Gwaii today.

Winds are expected to hit late this morning and into the afternoon with the gusts becoming less intense by the evening.

Environment Canada says that a strong low-pressure system will approach the northern B.C. coast today but move out of the area by tonight.

“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,” Environment Canada said in a statement on its website.

The southeast winds are expected to be between 90-110 km/hr.
