Fog shut down Vancouver

Posted by on Saturday, October 24, 2015

Looking through some weather history we take a step back to October 24, 1941.

The city of Vancouver was blanketed in thick fog for four days.

As a result of the relentless fog plane and ship schedules were disrupted and there were a number of traffic accidents.

So much so that residents started to walk to work when traffic pileups and accidents tied up bridges.

Police used flares to guide motorists and received several reports of criminals were purse snatching under cover of the fog.
