Nearly 100 separate power outages in neighborhoods across central and south Bainbridge Island were reported just after 5 p.m. Wednesday.

At least 1,000 homes were without power.

Most of the outages started just before 5:30 p.m. July 11.

Many of the blackouts involve just a handful of homes, but the largest outages appeared to be centered near Fletcher Bay (where 369 customers of Puget Sound Energy were affected), Crystal Springs (488), Fort Ward (319) and Point White (130).
