Parts of Bainbridge Island still waiting for power to be restored

Utility crews continue to work to restore electricity to homes and businesses that lost power in the wake of Thursday’s powerful windstorm.

PSE reported 488 outages across Western Washington, with 23,922 customers still without electricity just before 11 a.m. Saturday.

A total of 18 separate outages were ongoing on Bainbridge Saturday, with more than 320 PSE customers without power. The island outages stretched from Agate Passage to south of Eagledale Park.

PSE expects to have power restored to Bainbridge by noon Sunday.

The utility said damage to its power grid was worst in Kitsap, Island, Skagit and Whatcom counties.

Large transmission lines were damaged during the storm and must be fixed before workers can focus on smaller, local distribution systems.

Other outages in Kitsap County include neighborhoods in Bremerton, Suquamish, Hansville, Seabeck, Silverdale and Poulsbo.
