According to city officials, a lightning strike was recorded at Edmonton Avenue and Main Street in Penticton, which damaged some fuses and two transformers, during Sunday night's storm.
Those transformers had to be replaced.
This caused a power outage in a select area of Edmonton and Main at approximately 2 a.m. City Electric Utility crews were called out to restore power to the area at 4:30 a.m.
However, a few apartment buildings were without power until approximately 8:30 a.m., as crews addressed final details, according to communications officer Simone Blais.
