Bainbridge neighborhood hit by power outage

Power outages continued to spread across Puget Sound as heavy rains continue to soak the region Friday afternoon.

Two outages were reported on Bainbridge Island, according to Puget Sound Energy.

The largest involved 71 homes in the Northeast McRedmond Lane area, between the Grand Forest East and Highway 305. Residents there lost power just before 12:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 20.

The cause of the outage is under investigation. PSE expects to have electricity restored by 2:30 p.m.

The other outage on Bainbridge was limited to a single home, near Grand Avenue Northeast on the island’s eastern shore.

PSE reported a total of 33 outages just after 1 p.m. Friday, with a total of 2,151 customers without power.

Only one other outage has been reported in Kitsap County, one that involves four PSE customers south of Bethel just west of Long Lake.
