A windy day on White Rock’s waterfront

Monday afternoon was a blustery one

Monday was a windy one, as winds up to 80 km/h gusted across the Lower Mainland, Fraser Valley and Vancouver Island, causing power outages and prompting ferry cancellations – but it didn’t deter visitors to White Rock’s waterfront, where smiles were spotted amongst the powerful gusts.

Rain – with some wind on Wednesday – is forecast for the rest of this week.
