Several high wind warnings are active in the B.C. South Coast region.



Winds gusting up to 90 km/h have led to the cancellation of four BC Ferries sailings.

The 8 a.m. and 12 p.m. sailings from Tsawwassen to Swartz Bay and the 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. trips from Swartz Bay to Tsawwassen have been cancelled.

Other sailings on this route are expected to proceed as scheduled, BC Ferries said.

“If you have a booking on one of these cancelled sailings, you will hear from our customer service centre to let you know if we can fit you on an alternate sailing, or if your booking must be cancelled,” staff said. “In the case of a cancellation, we will refund your fees and/or fares.”
