Power goes out on Bainbridge Island, downtown Winslow

Nearly 800 homes and businesses lost power on Bainbridge Island just after 6 a.m. Monday.

The outage area stretched from the Grand Forest to the Highway 305 corridor, all the way south to downtown Winslow.

The blackout was reported as starting at 5:58 a.m. Aug. 27, and falling trees were a factor, according to Puget Sound Energy.

The outage left traffic signals on Highway 305 dark. Many businesses in the High School Road area delayed opening Monday.

Power was restored to the High School Road area just before 8 a.m.

PSE reported 754 customers lost power during the outage.
