It’s likely you noticed last night and this morning that it’s a little more than blustery outside.

A warning was issued by Environment Canada on Wednesday night predicted that 90 kilometre-an-hour winds will hit Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley throughout Thursday. Well, it already seems to be wreaking havoc throughout the city as more than 100,000 homes were left without power in Metro Vancouver, the Fraser Valley, and the Sunshine Coast.

Here are 14 photos of the chaos caused by today’s windstorm.

90 km/per hr wind storm all night and this morning. I love the sounds. Over 70,000 without power this morning #BCStorm
