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 pm, 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 Street Southwest (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 remain, but crews were busy cleaning those up, Swaney said.
The City of Edmonds closed all of its parks prior to the storm as a precaution.
Hardest hit in the south county area was Silver Lake, where more than 3,000 customers are still without power.
