Hundreds without power on Bainbridge

Hundreds of residents have been without power for most of the day on Bainbridge Island as strong winds knocked trees and branches into powerlines across the island Saturday.

The largest outage was reported near the North Town Woods neighborhood near Woodward Middle School. More than 600 homes there lost electricity just before 2 p.m. Saturday, according to Puget Sound Energy.

Another three dozen or so homes were without power near Manzanita and Battle Point, and a similar sized outage was also reported along Sunset Drive Northeast.

PSE expects to have power restored in the Manzanita area by 11 p.m. Saturday.

Power is expected to be back on in North Town Woods by 2 a.m. Sunday.

PSE said near 24,000 customers were without power in the utility’s service area just after 6 p.m. Saturday.

Other outages in Kitsap County were reported south of Keyport, and near Suquamish.
