Strong wind whips Greater Victoria

Winds predicted to subside by Monday afternoon

A wind warning is in effect for Greater Victoria Monday morning.

Environment Canada predicts strong winds that could cause damage are expected for most south coastal regions thanks to a pacific frontal system.

The front could bring westerly winds from 50 to 70 km/h and may toss loose objects or cause tree branches to break, warns Environment Canada.

The wind is expected to subside Monday afternoon.
