It didn’t come with quite the force of the windstorm which knocked the power to 700-thousand customers, but some blustery conditions this afternoon caused some headaches around the Lower Mainland.
BC Hydro reported 16-hundred customers in north Burnaby, Coquitlam, and Port Moody were without power until 4 after a tree fell over power lines.
Greg Pearce with Environment Canada said earlier high wind gusts would give cause for people to watch out for weakened trees from the last storm.
“We’ve got the southeast winds this morning, 40 to 60 kilometres an hour,” he said. “Then they’ll switch around to the northwest, with 50 to 70 kilometre gusts this afternoon.”
Elsewhere, weakened trees from that devastating August storm resulted in other small outages across the region.
