Here comes the next wave of Storms! Environment Canada issues Special Weather Statement for tonight and on into Thursday

Fall Storm season is already in peak form with another two
weather systems set to arrive starting tonight for Haida Gwaii
and the North Coast bringing more than 36 hours of wind and rain

Now that we've rested up from last weeks deluge, we can batten down the hatches for another round, with Environment Canada issuing a Special Weather Statement at just before 5 PM alerting the North Coast and Haida Gwaii to the arrival of Back to Back Storms.

The Weather events start tonight and carry through Wednesday, bringing winds of up to 100 km per hour and another 40mm or more of rain before the final front moves through sometime Thursday morning.

With Environment Canada warning of potential power outages and damage to tree branches or the movement of loose objects.
