Environment Canada has ended its special weather statement for Metro Vancouver.
Yesterday evening, it warned that powerful gusts were on the way.
The weather agency said the next storm would hit overnight, with strong Southeast winds up to 80 km/h battering coastal regions. Gusts of up to 100 km/h were expected for some areas on the West coast of Vancouver Island in the early hours.

Heavy rains were also in the forecast, with up to 70 mm predicted for the Howe Sound area and 30-50 mm expected for the inner coastal area.
The statement came after wind and rain blasted the region over the weekend, with more than 40,000 homes losing power Sunday evening.
