A wintry-like storm delivering heavy wind and rain battered Southwestern British Columbia over the weekend.

Meteorologists say wind gusts were hurricane-force at Tofino on Vancouver Island last night near 105 km/h.

Numerous ferry crossings had to be cancelled between the island and the mainland during the turbulent weather.

Meantime, apple growers in the Okanagan Valley are counting their losses today after a hail storm blew through the region yesterday.

One farmer may have lost about 60 percent of his crop according to a neighbour.
