It was one of about half a dozen downed lines crews had to deal with overnight.

Power was knocked out late Tuesday evening in several northeast neighbourhoods, including Arbour Creek, Evergreen and Forest Grove, after a power pole was knocked down.

It took crews two hours to restore power.

Some trees around the city were toppled by the wind.
