Nearly 500 homes were without power just after 1 p.m. Monday after a large outage hit the Fletcher Bay area of Bainbridge Island.
Some islanders have been without power since 2 a.m. Nov. 13, and the number of homes without electricity doubled by noon as strong winds continue to whip Bainbridge Island and the Puget Sound region.
A high wind warning will remain in place until 9 p.m.
The blackout in Fletcher Bay was reported just after noon Monday. A total of 367 customers lost electricity, according to PSE.
Another outage, involving 62 PSE customers, was reported at nearly the same time south of Day Road. Sparking wires were reported near Captain Charles Wilkes Elementary School.
The weather prompted two road closures Monday afternoon on Bainbridge.
City officials said Henderson Road was closed at NE Ralston Road due to a fallen tree in the power lines that was blocking the roadway.
Manitou Beach Drive NW was closed from NE Murden Cove Drive to NE Beachcrest Drive due to debris on roadway caused by high winds and the high tide.
PSE estimated that it had 24,300 customers without power in Western Washington just after 1 p.m. Monday.
