Seasonal storms often bring heavy rain and high winds to the North Shore. Severely high winds can bring down trees and branches causing power outages, road closures, and traffic disruptions.
Our creeks and rivers respond quickly to significant rainfall and flow extremely fast and high soon after a rain event.
Did you know that most bears killed by conservation officers have had access to human food?
British Columbia has the highest earthquake risk in Canada, and the North Shore is at the highest risk within BC.
Storm-related power outages are common on the North Shore, and can leave you without heat, light, and hot water for extended periods.
