Power has mostly been restored to the BC Hydro customers who had their power knocked out during a powerful storm that swept the region Tuesday night.
At the height of the storm, more than 38,000 customers were without power, and some 2,300 were still in the dark early Wednesday morning, with the hardest hit areas including Burnaby, Coquitlam and Port Moody.
The Vancouver Sun reported two men, one in Metro Vancouver and another in Coquitlam, were struck by lightning. Both survived and were released from hospital after being treated for minor injuries.
While the men are doing well, they told local media that they were "shaken" by the experience.
Some residents were harder hit by Tuesday's storms than others. Grouse Mountain, on Vancouver's North Shore, was forced to suspend its gondola for about three hours, stranding several hundred people on the mountain top for several hours before power could be restored.
Several severe thunderstorm warnings and watches remained in place for much of the BC Interior into Wednesday before slowly dropping in the afternoon.
Wednesday night, it was Alberta's turn
for severe weather, with severe thunderstorm warnings widespread across that province.
