UPDATE | PSE says Kitsap, Thurston hardest hit by snowstorm; COBI says stay off roads

Snow continues to fall in Kitsap County and more families are finding themselves without electricity as a winter windstorm sweeps through the Puget Sound region Monday night.

Puget Sound Energy said more than 43,600 customers were without power just after 8 p.m. Feb. 11.

The number of people without power doubled between 6 and 8 p.m.

PSE said it had reports of 544 individual outages in the region. The power company said its customers in Kitsap and Thurston counties had been hit hardest.

A total of 51 local outages were reported on Bainbridge just before 8 p.m. Monday.

The hardest hit areas of the island were central and south Bainbridge, though large scattered outages were also reported on the north end.

In all, a total of 6,677 PSE customers on Bainbridge were without electricity just after 8 p.m. Monday.

City of Bainbridge Island officials said just after 6:30 p.m. that road conditions were unsafe due to falling trees on the island, and asked residents to “please stay off the roads.”

The city also activated its Emergency Operations Center to coordinate response efforts.
