If you got a 5 a.m. wake up call from an alarm you never set this morning, you can thank the #BCStorm.
Environment Canada issued a severe thunderstorm watch for the entire Okanagan Valley yesterday.
According to Environment Canada and local residents, the storm began rolling through the Okanagan Valley around 9:30 p.m. last night.
While some chose to brave the storm from indoors, others watched the lightning show up close and personal while embracing the rattling aftermath of thunder from outdoors.
