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.
