Crow causes power outage

A crow flew into power lines, got zapped and took some homes offline in Kelowna Sunday evening.

Residents around the 700 block of Martin ave may have noticed the power go out just before 8 p.m.

A witness saw a mangled crow lying on the street nearby.

Power crews attended the scene and had restored power by 8:45 p.m.
