UPDATE | Power outage in Winslow delays ferry sailings

Saturday morning’s power outage on the east side of Bainbridge Island has delayed ferry sailings to and from Seattle, according to Washington State Ferries.

Puget Sound Energy reported just after 11 a.m. Saturday that more than 13,000 of its customers in Western Washington were without power.

On Bainbridge, nearly 2,000 homes and business were left without electricity Saturday morning.

The largest outage on Bainbridge — affecting 1,499 PSE customers — stretches from downtown Winslow where the ferry terminal is located to neighborhoods north of Ferncliff. That outage was first reported just after 10 a.m. Saturday.

WSF said the 10:25 a.m. Saturday sailing from Bainbridge to Seattle has been delayed due to a loss of power at the Bainbridge ferry terminal.

The power loss will also delay the 11:25 a.m. Saturday departure from Seattle to the island, according to WSF.
