This first video was shot by Ray Mitchell, it shows two trees knocked down from the wind storm near Bellevue Creek.
This second video was shot by Castanet's Trevor Rockliffe from his home in West Kelowna, looking north-east.
The residents of a home on Grantham Road in South East Kelowna were lucky no one was injured when a huge tree came crashing down.
The 100 foot pine tree damaged the chimney and roof and when it became uprooted during Friday's wicked storm.
No one was home at the time of the incident and the family has spent Saturday with insurance adjusters while watching the skies to see if any more damage will come because of more rain.
Meanwhile, Martha King, who lives on Curlew Drive near Chute Lake Elementary School tells Castanet the skylight was ripped off the roof of her home and rain came pouring in, causing flooding and spreading drywall dust all over the place.
Trees were knocked down up and down the valley late Friday night and early Saturday morning.
