Falling tree knocks out power to Mountlake Terrace neighborhood

MOUNTLAKE TERRACE — A Mountlake Terrace neighborhood lost power for several hours Wednesday, including the Recreation Pavilion center housing the city pool.

The outage was reported about 1:45 p.m., Snohomish County Public Utility District spokesman Neil Neroutsos said. Crews were expected to be working in the area into the evening.

As of 6 p.m., about 120 customers were still without power, Neroutsos said.

The outage was caused by a tree falling into power lines, he said.

Officials canceled fitness and swimming classes at the recreation center because of the outage, according to the city Twitter account.
