Surrey Alerts - Winter Conditions

Weather updates

February 14: Heavy rain is being forecast for the Lower Mainland, starting tonight until Thursday. Surrey’s main roads are in good shape, but please drive carefully as there may be ponding of water on roadways.

Crews have been focusing on ensuring that all catch basins are cleared in anticipation of rain and warmer temperatures. In many instances, the snow on the side of the road is being plowed onto the sidewalk area. If snow has been plowed onto your sidewalk, please do not shovel it back onto the roadway. Please shovel snow onto grass areas or onto your yard instead. We greatly appreciate the efforts of everyone who are clearing sidewalks and we ask that you please be patient.

Reporting a weather issue

  • For any emergency situation where there is an immediate threat to public safety, call 9-1-1.
  • For trees across power lines, call the BC Hydro Emergency line at 1-888-769-3766.
  • For non-emergency snow and ice, Report a Problem online, or call our Service Request Line between Monday to Friday, 8am to 4pm at 604-591-4152.
  • For issues such as branches and trees on the roadway, low water pressure, or any non-emergency situation that is impacting City infrastructure (including parks), Report a Problem online, or call our Service Request Line at 604-591-4152.

Preparing for winter conditions

You can prepare for winter conditions and weather associated power outages with a few simple steps:

  • Have cell phones charged
  • Ensure flashlights have batteries installed
  • Ensure adequate food and water supplies
  • Use candles with care
  • Stay off the roads and drive only when absolutely required
  • Clear the perimeter drains around your property of ice and debris.
  • Get familiar with how to get your family and business prepared in the event of an emergency or disaster.

By taking a few simple precautions we can help alleviate some of the risks associated with winter weather and keep our community safe.
