Seattle Post-Intelligencer: Gusty winds knock out power in Puget Sound area

SEATTLE—Utility crews are making progress in restoring electrical service after gusty winds this morning knocked out power in the Puget Sound region.

A Snohomish County P-U-D spokesman says it’s down to a handful of outages from a peak of 22,000.

Sue Veseth (VEE-seth) with Tacoma Power says it has 13,000 outages because of continuing winds knocking tree limbs into power lines, even as others are repaired.

Puget Sound Energy reports 14,000 customer out of service.

In the Sumner area two trees crashed into a home. No one injured.

A power outage in Eastern Washington was caused by a downed B-P-A transmission line. The Benton R-E-A had thousands of customers out of service from Benton City to Grandview.
