UPDATE | More than 4,000 homes without power on Bainbridge

The south end of Bainbridge Island was still without electricity after noon Monday, Feb. 19, following a weekend windstorm that pushed trees into power lines from one end of the island to the other.

The largest outage cut electricity to nearly 3,900 Puget Sound Energy customers on Bainbridge, and the blackout area stretched from South Beach to Eagle Harbor, and further north to the Grand Forest.

That outage was reported just before 7:30 p.m. Sunday.

Nearly 20 other outages — in neighborhoods near Yeomalt, Olympic Terrace, Kallgren, Day Road, North Madison, Point Monroe and Agate Point — were also stretching into Monday afternoon.

PSE reported more than 11,600 customers in all were without power in the utility’s Western Washington service area just before 1 p.m. Monday.

PSE hopes to have power restored to much of Bainbridge by 3 p.m. Monday.
