Some outages Saturday after weekend storm


Updated 8 pm
Winds from the latest Pacific storm hit south Snohomish County around 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, but not with the high sustained winds and gusts that many feared. Winds began backing off around 7:30 p.m., but not before knocking out power to approximately 1,000 south Edmonds customers in an area roughly bordered by I-5 (east), 104th Ave. W. (west), 236th St. S.W. (north) and the County Line (south).

According to Aaron Swaney of Snohomish County PUD, most were restored by 8 p.m. A few scattered outages remained after that, mostly near Lake Ballinger and central Lynnwood. Crews were busy cleaning these up.

Hardest hit in the south county area was Silver Lake, where more than 3,000 customers were without power.

If you experience a loss of power, report it to Snohomish County PUD by calling 425-783-1001. To track outages, follow @SnoPUD on Twitter, or visit the PUD’s online outage map.
