DEPARTURE BAY FERRY DELAYS

WIND STORM CAUSES TWO SAILING FERRY WAIT
The wind and rain storm which ripped through the west coast yesterday resulted in a two sailing wait at the Departure Bay ferry terminal.
By noon the ferry traffic was backed up on Stewart Avenue all the way to Townsite Road. It is presumed the reduced parking in the ferry terminal added to the traffic collecting on Stewart Avenue.
The weather did turn nice by mid day, and long weekend travelers at least had lovely sunshine to bask in, as they waited for the BC Ferry to Horseshoe Bay.
The storm also knocked out power to about 5000 Nanaimo residents, which was restored later in the day
