A bird is behind last night’s power outage.
Residents in the East Hill area of Vernon were without power shortly before 9 p.m. Wednesday, May 27.
BC Hydro reports that power was restored by 10 pm. for the 2,963 residents impacted.
The cause is a bird contacting the wires.
This is the second time as many days that a bird has knocked out power in the North Okanagan.
And it is the third time in two weeks.
