During this weekend, January 21,2018 ,Vancouver B.C and the area was hit by a storm with winds topping 70 miles per hour. At the peak of the storm, more than 69,000 BC Hydro customers lost power. The Sunshine Coast, parts of Vancouver Island and areas south of the Fraser River including Surrey, Langley and Delta appeared to have been hardest hit. The extreme winds caused the BC Ferries that transport passengers and vehicles from the mainland to Vancouver Island as well as the Sunshine Coast, to cancel numerous sailings. Here in this video , a home is crushed by a toppled cedar tree approximately 80 feet tall. The front upper bedrooms outside wall and roof are completely destroyed . After speaking with one of the neighbours he made note that at 4 am on this Sunday the 21st of January ,he was awakened by enormous crashing sounds and wind noise. His two sons and wife were also awakened and quite shaken . "The only one of us that did not wake up was our dog ( a Great Dane) " he chuckled. After looking out his back yard to check his trees and seeing all were still standing, he looked out the front door and surrounding area noticing it was the neighbours tree that had crushed their roof. No one else was around at the time this footage was recorded other than one young lady whom is a resident of the damaged home, but she was not interested in saying how everyone was that lived here.
