Power goes out on Bainbridge Island, downtown Winslow

Nearly 800 homes and businesses lost power on Bainbridge Island just after 6 a.m. Monday.

The outage area stretched from the Grand Forest to the Highway 305 corridor, all the way south to downtown Winslow.

The blackout was reported as starting at 5:58 a.m. Aug. 27, and falling trees were a factor, according to Puget Sound Energy.

Power was restored to the High School Road area just before 8 a.m.

PSE reported 754 customers lost power during the outage.
