Includes update from Edmonds Public Works:
If you lost power in Edmonds overnight, you weren’t alone. Snohomish County Public Utility District spokeswoman Julee Cunningham said that high winds knocked out three PUD substations across their system, resulting in brief outages to about 7,000 customers.
Now PUD crews are working on the approximately 200 customers who are still without power — the result of tree branches falling on power lines — and it’s likely some of those are in Edmonds, Cunningham said. “We have full crews out there now and they are working very hard,” she said Tuesday morning. “We want to make sure everyone has power for Thanksgiving.”
City of Edmonds Senior Utilities Engineer Mike De Lilla said that with the exception of surface water on the roadway at 216th Street Southwest and Highway 99, the City so far isn’t seeing any flooding.
The City could use residents’ help in moving leaves that may have collected around storm drain grates, De Lilla said.
