Freak Snowstorm Hits B.C's Fraser Valley

British Columbia
Photo Gallery: A Winter of Weird Weather
Some parts of British Columbia were hit with extreme weather conditions Sunday, while others basked in sunshine.

A freak snowstorm in the Fraser Valley caused treacherous driving conditions for local residents and caused power interruptions.

British Columbia Hydro and Power Authority was last night attempting to restore normal electricity service to 2,500 customers in Maple Ridge who were affected when a fire engine flipped over and ruptured a power line.

Despite blue skies in Vancouver, nearby Burnaby, Coquitlam and the Fraser Valley were all hit by the blizzard, and police told drivers to be careful following last night's fatal road accident in Coquitlam.

The Trans-Canada Highway was dangerous and the poor conditions resulted in several accidents, as the falling snow quickly turned to ice.

Environment Canada issued several winter weather warnings for most parts of the province.
