Thousands lose power during Wednesday outage on Bainbridge Island

More than 4,500 homes and businesses lost power on Bainbridge Island Wednesday afternoon.

The outage started just after 3 p.m. Jan. 9. The area without power stretched from downtown Winslow to Manitou Beach.

According to Puget Sound Energy’s website, the cause of the outage was under investigation.

PSE hopes to have power restored to the area by 5 p.m. Wednesday.

An alert issued by the city of Bainbridge Island said Ferncliff Avenue was closed at Yaquina Avenue due to a vehicle crash that involved power lines, and added that PSE has turned off power due to the incident.
