A powerful storm surge at high tide flooded sections of West Vancouver's waterfront this morning, closing the Seawall from Ambleside to Dundarave and two nearby parks.

The water was at its peak at 9 a.m. and has been receding since, said West Vancouver spokesman Jeff McDonald.

The following sections are closed to the public until the water recedes and crews can clean-up the area:

  • The Seawalk from Ambleside to Dundarave
  • The piers at Ambleside, Dundarave and John Lawson Park
  • The Spirit Trail through Ambleside
  • Ambleside Park
  • Dundarave Park
  • John Lawson Park playground
