UPDATE | Thousands lose power on Bainbridge Island during Monday night snowstorm

Heavy snowfall on Bainbridge Island has knocked down power lines and put more than 2,000 customers of Puget Sound Energy in the dark just before 6 p.m. Monday.

PSE reported 25 different outages on Bainbridge late Monday, with the largest stretching from Gazzam Lake to Point White. The largest neighborhood outage on the island left 1,162 PSE customers without electricity.

PSE hopes to have power restored by 7 p.m. Monday for many of the outages on Bainbridge.

A total of 355 outages have been reported in PSE’s Western Washington service area, with 19,796 without power, according to PSE, at 6 p.m. Feb. 11.

Other blackouts in Kitsap County were reported late Monday in Indianola, Poulsbo and Port Orchard.

More snow is expected through the night, and a winter storm warning remains in effect for the region through 4 a.m. Tuesday.
