Power doused in pockets of Okanagan

Several thousand customers are without power around the Central Okanagan as a result of three separate power outages.

FortisBC advises Joe Rich and Big White are both without power due to high winds in the area.

A tree fell on a power line knocking out power to about 1,500 customers. Power is expected to be restored about 11 a.m.

Portions of downtown Kelowna are also without power after an excavator hit a pole.

No word on when that outage will be resolved.

A third outage is affecting the North Glenmore area.

No cause has been determined and no restoration time has been determined.
