B.C.’s south coast will have another strong front whip up winds Saturday, that could result in gusts up to 100 km/h.

Environment Canada issued a wind warning for north, west and east Vancouver Island along with Greater Victoria sayings winds could be around 80 km/h.

For Greater Victoria they will develop this evening and ease midday Sunday. For north, west and east Vancouver Island winds will pick up this afternoon and fade by Sunday morning.

Friday’s strong front left over 14,000 without power and resulted in trees in places like Nanaimo falling on cars and homes.

Highway 14 was blocked off near Jordan River for several hours after a tree fell, resulting in the only route to the small town through Cowichan Lake.

Environment Canada warns  High winds may toss loose objects or cause tree branches to break. Damage to buildings, such as to roof shingles and windows may occur.

B.C. Hydro advises those who may come across downed power lines to stay at least 10 metres back as there is no way to determine if the wire is live even if it only comes from a home.

Over 45,000 were also without power in Seattle as the storm hit south of the border.
