BC Hydro crews are ramping up for a busy storm season–that from utility spokesperson Ted Olnyk, who says the huge coastal storm that hit the south coast this past weekend shows the importance of preparation.

Olnyk says BC Hydro crews have been doing some aggressive vegetation management in our region to minimize power outrages.

Olnyk says fortunately our region pretty much dodged a bullet in missing the brunt of the storm, which hammered the Lower Mainland region.
