UPDATE | Crystal Springs hit by power outage

Things just got even darker on Bainbridge Island, thanks to the big windstorm sweeping through Puget Sound on Monday afternoon.

Puget Sound Energy said the Crystal Springs area on the island — from Gazzam Lake south to Fort Ward Park — lost electricity just before 2:30 p.m. Monday.

The outage area stretches from Crystal Springs east to Blakely Avenue NE.

Nearly 1,250 homes in that area are without power.

Outages were reported in 15 different areas on Bainbridge Wednesday afternoon, stretching from Fort Ward to Agate Pass. Almost 2,000 PSE customers on the island were without power due to Monday’s windstorm.

Scattered outages were reported across Kitsap County, including outages in Kingston, Poulsbo, Silverdale, Port Orchard and Bremerton.

Power is slowly being restored across the region.

PSE said a total of 18,192 customers in Western Washington were without power Wednesday afternoon.

Falling trees or branches are the common factor in many of the outages.
