Rare tornado causes damage to UBC’s Grey Point campus

November 10, 2021
An EF0-rated tornado caused damage to the University of British Columbia’s Grey Point campus on Saturday. The waterspout, which CBC reports is the first in the City of Vancouver in over five decades, formed near Vancouver International Airport and moved north toward Howe Sound, causing damage to vehicles, trees, and power lines. The tornado caused hail, rain, and winds of 90 to 110 kilometers an hour on the UBC campus. As of Monday, University Boulevard was closed because of the storm, resulting in three bus routes being rerouted and shuttle busses being added in one area to provide transit for passengers.
