Thousands lose power on Bainbridge Island

Nearly 2,000 Bainbridge Island homes and businesses were without power Wednesday morning following a night of high winds on the island.

Puget Sound Energy reported a total of 1,835 customers — nearly the entire south end of the island — lost power just after 5 a.m. Wednesday.

The outage area stretches from Gazzam Lake east to the southern shore of Eagle Harbor, and then all parts south.

PSE said falling trees were to blame.

A repair crew is onsite, and PSE expects to have power restored by 10 a.m. March 8.
