The wind storm is causing widespread power outages across the lower mainland.
There are around 10,000 BC Hydro customers currently without power, with the majority in Abbotsford and Mission.
Global BC Meteorologist Mark Madryga says wind gusts are kicking up to 90km/hr in the Fraser valley.
He says the cold arctic air will mean it’s going to feel like -20.
Abbotsford Police say they will try to get the homeless community inside tonight.
They are also warning motorists to stay inside and off the roads if possible.
BC Hydro Spokesperson Mora Scott says crews are prepared to quickly restore power so people don’t lose their heating.
“It’s always a priority to get our customers restored as quickly and safely as we possibly can, our crews were ready for this so they are out responding to repair the power in the areas that it’s required.”
