Three days after a major windstorm on Dec. 11 scattered tree limbs and knocked out power to much if not all of Mountlake Terrace, there was still clean up and repair work to do in the area.

Sustained wind speeds of 45 miles per hour were recorded throughout Snohomish County on Thursday night. Snohomish County PUD reported that more than 50,000 of their county and Camano Island customers were without power, including many in Mountlake Terrace. The power outage left city residents in the dark and disrupted the Mountlake Terrace City Council’s work/study session that was occurring at the interim City Hall.

By Friday morning Snohomish County PUD crews had restored power to almost all of their Mountlake Terrace residents. City work crews spent Friday clearing fallen tree limbs on streets and in city parks.

Although the store is able to process purchases using debit and credit cards, Rogers Market in Mountlake Terrace is not selling gift cards presently as a result of a electronic communication line no longer operating after the Dec. 11 power outage. Store management hopes to see the system for gift card purchases restored in the next few days, but has been told it may take as long as two weeks.
