A powerful early autumn storm, the successor to Typhoon Roke, will continue to lash the west coast of British Columbia, Canada, with high winds and heavy rain.
Typhoon Roke made landfall in Japan early last week and his since made a long trek across the northern Pacific Ocean.
High winds and heavy rain, having spread ashore before daybreak Monday, will linger through early Tuesday as the storm center crosses the Queen Charlotte Islands.
The highest winds of hurricane force in gusts will lash northern Vancouver Island as well as the Queen Charlotte Islands. Monday morning, the highest gusts to 105 mph were clocked on Solander Island, off northwestern Vancouver Island. At the southern end of the Queen Charlottes, 75-mph gusts were registered.
Wind speeds will drop off steeply away from the exposed coast and coastal waters, but they will reach gale force along shores from the southern Alaska Panhandle south to Washington and Oregon.
Rainfall of 2 to as much as 6 inches will douse much of the area between the coast and the Coast Mountains. The area has already had heavy rain lately, so more flooding and landslides will be possible.
On Sunday, evacuation orders were lifted for some residents of the central British Columbia coast, according to CBC News. The area had been hit with 100 to 200 mm (about 4-8 inches) of rain from Thursday to Saturday. Highway 20, linking Bella Coola to the interior, was reopened after a damage assessment, CBC said.
Meanwhile, in Washington and Oregon, small craft advisories, gale warnings and storm warnings for coastal waters were hoisted as of early Monday. High wind warnings were in effect for reaches of the coast. Strongest winds will end by late afternoon, Monday, south of the Canadian border.
Some rain in western Washington and northwestern Oregon will fall heavily but not heavily enough so to trigger any widespread, significant flooding.
