Bainbridge homes lose power Tuesday night

Bainbridge homes lose power Tuesday night

Approximately 75 homes were without power Wednesday morning following another night of snow on Bainbridge Island.

The largest outage was reported just south of Ferncliff, where Puget Sound Energy said 60 of its customers lost electricity just after 11 p.m. Tuesday.

PSE hopes to have power restored to the neighborhood by 11:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Another 14 homes just west of the Bloedel Reserve also lost power overnight.

The outage was reported at 3 a.m. Wednesday. PSE hopes to get the lights back on by 4 p.m. Wednesday.

Both outages were blamed on falling branches and trees that hit power lines.

Another small outage, with just one home affected, was reported near Fletcher Bay Wednesday.

A total of 2,459 customers in PSE’s Western Washington service area were without electricity Wednesday morning. Neighborhood outages were reported across North Kitsap, including in Poulsbo and Suquamish.
