MOUNTLAKE TERRACE — Storm damage cut power to about 55,000 Snohomish County Public Utility District customers Sunday.
By noon Monday, the PUD had restored power to most. But about 1,600 customers, mostly in the Bothell and Lynnwood areas, were waiting for repairs to downed lines and blown transformers, according to the PUD’s outage map.
Crews were working to restore power and preparing for a second round of wind Monday.
People who find a fallen power line should stay at least 30 feet away, including from ones that are broken or sagging, according to the PUD. And don’t touch trees tangled with downed power lines.
If the power is out, combustible heating sources and generators should not be inside a home because of the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.
Fallen lines and outages can be reported to 425-783-1001.
