The storm passed through most of the Island last night, but parts of the strait were still too rough for safe passage this morning.
B.C. Ferries cancelled numerous sailings around Vancouver Island this morning, Jan. 21, according to service notices from the corporation.

Before that, ferries were docked at Departure Bay and Duke Point in Nanaimo.
The service notice advised users that B.C. Ferries would resume service as soon as it was safe to do so. For updates, click here.
“We don’t take the decision to cancel sailings lightly, as we know customers rely on us to get to their destinations,” the notice reads.
The storm that hit most of the Island on Saturday night is moving into Vancouver, including Delta and the North Shore. Environment Canada has issued a wind warning for those areas, with wind speeds expected to reach 80 kilometres per hour in coastal areas before easing at about noon.
