Strong winds leave hundreds without electricity on Bainbridge

Nearly 1,500 homes were left without power Saturday morning in the Yeomalt/Wing Point area of Bainbridge Island after strong winds swept across the island.

The outage area stretches from just south of Manitou Beach to downtown Winslow’s eastern end, according to Puget Sound Energy.

PSE hopes to have power restored by 12:30 p.m. Saturday.

Six other neighborhoods, totaling about 100 homes, were also without power elsewhere on Bainbridge Island Saturday morning.

Nearly 9,000 PSE customers have reported losing power Saturday across the Puget Sound region. Other areas without power in Kitsap County included neighborhoods in Silverdale and Seabeck.
