A power pole, closer to Horseshoe Canyon, was split in two by a lightning strike sometime this morning.
Power for nearly 100 residents went out for a few hours as lightning struck a wooden power pole, splitting it in half.
"The lightning, damaged that one structure and we ended up having to dispatch a crew to the site to fix the pole and it was split in half!" Explained Nick Peelar from ATCO Electric.
"There was an outage associated with it and had a crew had to go in to replace to the pole and get the power back up and running."
It took a matter of hours for the crew to fix the problem and replace the pole.
"It does happen from time to time. Not all the time but we have a few of them every summer during the lightning season, for sure," concluded Peelar.
