More than 28,500 BC Hydro customers in the Eastern Fraser Valley were still without power when they woke up Saturday morning following a wicked windstorm that tore through the Lower Mainland Friday evening.
Strong winds toppled trees and snapped branches, taking down power lines on Nov. 4.
The first outages began around 8 p.m. and continued throughout the evening knocking out power to more and more people as the evening went on.
By 9 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 5, more than 28,500 customers were still without power between Mission and Hope, according to the BC Hydro outages map and website.
