High winds affect power lines

Power to a few homes in North Glenmore may be affected after a large tree fell against some power lines this morning.

Fortis is currently at the scene on Grandview Road and may need to cut power to area residents, in order to remove the tree and fix the lines. 

High winds in the area are being blamed, but fire crews on the scene say they haven’t heard of any other wind related incidents.

Downed power lines in West Kelowna are also affecting people living on Boucherie Road. High winds are being blamed for this latest issue and the road is closed at the corner of Boucherie and Hudson roads.
