Victoria and its surrounding areas grappled with intense weather conditions today as strong winds and high tides wreak havoc along Dallas Road and other coastal spots.

The City of Victoria, Colwood, Sooke and Oak Bay have taken precautionary measures by closing several areas due to the severity of the storm.

The impact of the weather has been drastic, leading to closures in various areas along the water, including Dallas Road, the Ross Bay Seawall, Holland Point Park’s lower walkway, and the Westsong Walkway.

Sections of streets have been shut down due to flooding caused by the relentless waves crashing over the sea wall.

The City of Victoria is urging residents to exercise caution near shorelines, particularly in low-lying areas, and emphasized the importance of avoiding closed sections for safety reasons. The District of Oak Bay also took measures by closing a portion of Beach Drive due to heavy rainfall and high tide.

The weather’s force wasn’t limited to the roads; the Lagoon Bridge to Esquimalt Lagoon faced temporary closure for similar reasons. However, the City of Colwood assured efforts were underway to reopen it promptly.

Despite the dangers, individuals ventured out to witness the powerful spectacle, with dozens braving the massive waves along Dallas Road.
