Wind Storms & Power Outage

Seasonal storms often bring heavy rain and high winds to the City of North Vancouver and the North Shore. High winds can bring down trees and branches causing power outages, road closures and traffic disruption.

Wind warnings are issued for most B.C. coastal regions when sustained winds of 65 km/h or greater or wind gusts of 90 km/h or greater are forecast.

Power Outages

First check outage map to see if BC Hydro is aware of your outage. To report an outage call 1 800 BCHYDRO (1 800 224 9376) or *HYDRO (*49376) on your mobile or report it online. Remeber to treat all downed power lines as 'live' or energized. Stay at least 3 car lengths or 10 metres (30 feet) away. More tips from BC Hydro.

Residents without power who need a place to get warm can visit their local community centre during regular opening hours.
