Hundreds of residents on Bainbridge Island are still waiting for power to be restored in the aftermath of a winter snowstorm that hammered Western Washington in the past week.

More than 800 homes and businesses on the island were still without electricity before 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, according to Puget Sound Energy. A total of 46 separate outages are still ongoing on the island, according to PSE.

PSE said utility crews are continuing to work through the night to restore power to those who lost it after snowstorms swept through the region Monday and Tuesday.

Since the first snow last Friday, PSE said that power had been restored to approximately 327,000 customers through 3:30 a.m. Wednesday, but roughly 18,000 PSE customers were still without power.

On Bainbridge, small and scattered outages were reported from one end of the island to the other. Several outages involved dozens of homes, while in other neighborhoods, just a handful of houses were without electricity.

PSE said a total of 879 customers on Bainbridge were waiting for power to be restored Wednesday; many of those customers have been without electricity since Monday afternoon.
