Thursday started off nice enough. Then, seemingly out of nowhere, Vernon was hit by strong winds and some serious hail. The wind and hail passed as fast as it had appeared. First responders and Hydro crews were kept busy most of the afternoon cleaning up the mess.
BX Fire and Rescue was right in the middle of the mayhem, with two trees coming down in front of their Fire Hall on Silver Star road.
Despite the mess, BX continued operating and responding to calls.
