UPDATE | Falling tree smashes two cars, but no one injured

Two cars were badly damaged but no one was hurt when a large tree was toppled in Monday’s windstorm and fell onto Summer Hill Lane.

Bainbridge Island has been battered by a fierce windstorm that has left thousands without power across Western Washington.

No injuries have yet been reported on Bainbridge, but authorities have shut down multiple streets because of downed power lines.

A high wind warning remains in effect through 9 p.m., and the National Weather Service has predicted wind gusts up to 65 mph.

Puget Sound Energy said more than 50,000 of its customers in Western Washington were without power just after 5 p.m. Monday.

PSE said 34 separate outages on Bainbridge were ongoing as of 5 p.m. Nov. 13. The neighborhoods without power stretch from Agate Pass on the north end of the island to Crystal Springs on the south end.

Power has been restored in the largest outage in the Crystal Springs area, which impacted nearly 1,250 homes, although a number of homes on the south end remained without power Monday evening.

Hundreds of other homes on Bainbridge Island were still in the dark as of 5 p.m.

The largest single outage Monday evening on the island was near Fletcher Bay, where 367 PSE customers have been without power since noon.

PSE hopes to have the lights back on in that area by 9 p.m. Monday.
