It’s time to hunker down, Sooke.

The second storm to blast B.C.’s South Coast will hit the region tonight with wind gusts of up to 100 km/h. The winds will drop to 90 km/h Friday morning.

The 3rd and largest storm is expected to arrive on Saturday when the remnant of Super Typhoon Songda arrives on our shores.

The District of Sooke is reminding homeowners to prepare themselves, their families and their homes.

Flooding, power outages and wind damage may occur during winter storms. Residents are encouraged to keep emergency supplies stocked – such as food, water, flashlights, batteries and blankets.

As a precautionary measure, residents are invited to fill their own sandbags using supplies from the District of Sooke Public Works Yard, located at 2060 Kaltasin Rd. Sand and bags are available, but please bring your own shovel.
