Today, Environment Canada issued a rainfall warning for Metro Vancouver including the City of Vancouver, Burnaby, New Westminster, Coquitlam, Maple Ridge, and West and North Vancouver.

These areas can expect to receive 70-90 mm of rainfall by Friday morning, and the water is already pooling up. In fact, some low-lying areas, such as Still Creek Drive in Burnaby, are already flooded. In addition, this is the second time this week that these areas have been hit with flash flooding.

TransLink is also advising riders that they will have to take a shuttle train between Commercial and VCC-Clark Sky SkyTrain stations due to a track issue.

According to the transit authority, a landslide caused flooding at the station overnight, which therefore prompted the disruption.
