UPDATE | Pair of trees to blame for Wednesday’s power outage on Bainbridge

Two toppled trees were the cause of the power outage late Wednesday afternoon that left nearly half of Bainbridge Island without electricity.

Two trees — about 100 feet apart — both fell over in the 9800 block of Sand Road NE Wednesday.

The power outage area stretched from the Grand Forest all the way to South Beach. At one point, there were 3,879 PSE customers affected by the outage, which started just before 5:30 p.m.

PSE spokesman Andrew Padula said most PSE customers had their power restored by 8:48 p.m. Wednesday, July 11.

Crews worked all night to repair the damaged lines, Padula said.
