Power outages hit north Snohomish County as snow covers area

There was no timeline for when PUD crews expected to restore power for 5,800 customers.

MARYSVILLE — Snow coated much of the region Sunday morning, with parts of north Snohomish County seeing amounts of a half foot or more, even as other areas barely saw a few flakes.

Many people lost power. The Snohomish County PUD reported a peak outage of more than 15,000, mainly in north county and on Camano Island. That had dropped below 5,800 by nightfall.

The utility deployed 22 crews to identify problems, remove tree limbs and repair lines, said Aaron Swaney, a PUD spokesman.

Snowfall varied widely from area to area. At least a couple of inches fell in Marysville, leaving streets of slush. The city warned people to be on the lookout for downed power lines.

Parts of north Snohomish County saw more than 6 inches of snow, the National Weather Service reported.

Much of Everett also got a white blanket, which melted over the course of the day. In many areas to the south, there was a mere dusting, if anything.

In the parts of the county that saw snowfall, the flakes had tapered off by midday.

For President’s Day, meteorologists predicted a daytime high near 34 degrees with clear skies. A low temperature of 22 degrees was expected overnight into Tuesday. With wind chill, low temperatures could feel like they’re in the teens.
