The Western News has reached out to the City of Penticton for more details about the outage.
Multiple residents on social media reported seeing a bright flash in the sky before the power went out.
Power was restored for most residences before 1 a.m., although the City of Penticton website still lists a section of the city without power from Fairview Road and the Channel Parkway, east to Main Street and south to Brandon Avenue.
