Ponto Road in Kelowna is blocked off due to down trees and power lines in the area.

Several trees fell onto power lines catching fire about 3 p.m. just as an intense storm blew through the city.

Power is out to the homes on the road.

Elsewhere in the city, trees smashed cars on Enterprise way, fell on top of homes in Glenmore and caused mass debris issues in the Mission area.

Sections of the dome roof of the Central Sports Club on Ellis Street appeared to have blown off in the storm, causing rain to fall into the building.

In a message to Capital News, Central said that the restaurant sustained “unfortunate damage.”

“Some patio furniture flew off One Water when the wind picked up and it went through our tent and ripped a big hole into it,” said Central.
