Last Update 10:40PM
Just one last update to let folks know there are no power outages in Port Alberni at this time but everything south of town to Bamfield is out and looks like there are a number of folks out on the East side in Errington, Parksville, etc.
Thankfully the wind looks to be all done for tonight and that should be it for a week or two.
End of Update
The power just came back on at 9:25
Updates to the conditions will resume shortly.
The stars are out! If you are out beaver creek or Sproat lake you should keep an eye on the North sky. The solar storm is continuing and the aurora borealis is active. You just might see something!
The power is out again, for real this time. (at 8:04pm)
The conditions reported above will be stuck now until the power comes back on.
We have had gusts to 85kph just now and sustained winds of 50kph are continuing from the southwest.
Take care out there.
