Fraser Valley ice storm leaves thousands in the dark

Many residents in the Fraser Valley are still without power after freezing rain coated the region with a layer of ice.

Up to 20 centimetres of snow is also expected to fall in areas along the Coquihalla Highway and Highway 3, with conditions tapering off by Friday.

Tens of thousands of people in Abbotsford, Mission, Chilliwack and pockets of Langley are without power as freezing temperatures force trees and branches to snap under icy conditions. We do have additional crews coming in to assist with the restoration efforts, just to get as many customers back as quickly as possible.

According to the latest update from Environment Canada, Agassiz can expect a combination of freezing rain and snow until mid-day tomorrow.

The ice also resulted in unsafe driving conditions and prompted some road closures, Abbotsford police said on Twitter.
