Power out on Phelps Road

A windy 24 hours has taken its toll on Bainbridge Island early this week, leaving many without power as crews hustle to fix downed power lines.

Currently, power is out along Phelps Road.

Puget Sound Energy has dispatched a crew to patrol Phelps Road to determine the cause and fix the problem.

Bainbridge Island suffered 11 different power outages over May 13-14. Approximately 240 customers were left without power, according to PSE officials.

The outages were chiefly caused by tree branches falling on power lines or downed wires damaged by the wind itself.
