      An anticipated major windstorm will have a serious impact on ferry service on the southern coast of B.C.

      Today, B.C. announced a list of cancelled sailings on Monday (October 25) from all of its major terminals: Tsawwassen, Horseshoe Bay, Departure Bay, Swartz Bay, and Duke Point.

      In addition, sailings have been cancelled between Comox and Powell River.

      This has occurred as a so-called "bomb cyclone" has developed over the Pacific Ocean west of Vancouver Island.

      Pressure dropped to an all-time low in recorded history for that area, intensifying the magnitude of the storm.

      Environment Canada has forecast winds possibly gusting up to 100 kilometres per hour over northern Vancouver Island on October 25.

      In western sections of Metro Vancouver, winds could exceed 80 kilometres per hour that day.
