Outages under investigation as windstorm takes hold

Rolling power outages are affecting Greater Victoria residents Monday as strong winds move through the region.

As of 11 a.m., two outages are affecting North Saanich, one is affecting Saanich and one is affecting Sooke. The Saanich outage in Royal Oak is the largest, impacting 164 customers south of Valewood Trail, east of Quadra Street, north of Lucas Avenue and west of Lochside Drive.

The cause of all the outages is under investigation, except for the one in Sooke where a downed tree has been confirmed.

The outages come as strong winds sweep through Greater Victoria. In a weather warning, Environment Canada said winds gusting up to 90 km/h throughout the day could cause tree limb breakage and power outages.

Winds are expected to subside by late afternoon.
