Environment Canada has ended its thunderstorm watch for the Revelstoke area. Our original story follows:


A severe thunderstorm watch was issued for the Revelstoke area Friday, the morning after a storm knocked out power to many homes and businesses.

Environment Canada issued its second thunderstorm watch in as many days, saying “conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms that may be capable of producing strong wind gusts, large hail and heavy rain.”

The warning, which applies to most of the Kootenay-Rockies area, was issued Friday, July 15, at 10 a.m., but doesn’t say when the storm might hit.

Thursday night’s storm brought strong winds and heavy rain to the area. It knocked out power for several hours to more than 2,000 customers in Revelstoke.
