Near miss

Chase was hit with lightning, high winds and heavy rain last Wednesday. The storm knocked out power at approximately 5 p.m., with the outage lasting for about two hours. The storm also felled trees throughout the Shuswap, including one at Amanda Engel’s residence at the corner of Okanagan Avenue and Bay Drive, where a large branch just missed crushing her two vehicles and boat.
