Bainbridge neighborhoods lose power during heavy winds

Two neighborhoods on Bainbridge Island’s North End were without power Friday morning following a night of high winds in Western Washington.

Approximately 40 homes in the Manzanita area lost power just after 5 a.m. Friday, March 10.

Falling trees and vegetation were cited as the cause, according to Puget Sound Energy.

Another five homes south of Puget Bluff Lane, on the island’s east coast, were also without electricity Friday morning.

PSE reported those homes lost power not long after midnight, just before the strongest winds battered the island.

PSE has not given an update yet on when power will be restored to those neighborhoods.

Across PSE’s service area, roughly 2,300 customers were without power just after 10 a.m. Friday.

Outages were reported along Highway 305 just west of Agate Passage, and multiple outages were reported in Lincoln, Poulsbo, Tracyton, Bremerton, Port Orchard and Ollala.
