More homes on Bainbridge lose power

Another large power outage has been reported on Bainbridge Island in the wake of continued heavy rain in the region.

Puget Sound Energy said Friday afternoon that 66 of its customers just east of the Bloedel Reserve on Bainbridge lost power just after 1:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 20.

The cause of the outage was under investigation.

PSE expects to have power restored to the neighborhood by 4 p.m. Friday.

An earlier outage on Bainbridge — in the Northeast McRedmond Lane area — has been partially restored. A total of 71 homes lost electricity just before 12:30 p.m. Friday, but PSE said just 15 homes were still without power at 3 p.m. Friday. Equipment failure was blamed for the power loss.

PSE is responding to 32 outages in its Western Washington service area Friday, and 1,011 customers were still without power at 3 p.m. Friday.
