Snow closes schools, city hall on Bainbridge Island

Schools on Bainbridge Island — and across Kitsap County — were closed Monday following a Sunday snowstorm that blanketed much of Western Washington.

Bainbridge Island City Hall was also shut down due to the weather.

Up to 4 inches of snow fell on some parts of Bainbridge Island.

The National Weather Service’s office in Seattle has issued a winter storm warning until 1 p.m. Monday, and forecasters have predicted more snow, of up to 5 to 10 inches, in the Puget Sound area.

A winter storm warning for snow means severe winter weather conditions will make travel very hazardous or impossible, according to the National Weather Service.

The Bainbridge Island School District ordered schools closed just before 5 a.m. Monday, and said there would be no out-of-district transportation or activity runs.

Nearly 600 Puget Sound Energy customers on Bainbridge were without power Monday morning, mostly on the island’s north end.

Seven separate outages were reported on the island, with the largest near Fay Bainbridge Park, the Bloedel Reserve, south of Hidden Cove and near Seabold.

The biggest outage Monday stretched from Fay Bainbridge Park to south of NE Torvanger Road, with 395 homes without power.

PSE expects to have power restored later Monday for Bainbridge customers.

Other outages in Kitsap County were reported in Bremerton, Poulsbo and Hansville.

PSE said it had been notified of 157 outages throughout the area, with 6,463 customers without electricity.
