Storm knocks out power for thousands in Snohomish County

High winds and steady rain were expected for much of the area until Monday.

LYNNWOOD — Thousands of people were without power Sunday afternoon after a rain and wind storm blew across Snohomish County.

Gusts threw branches and trees over power lines and roads, taking out power in places including Lake Roesiger Road. Electricial outages affected over 30,000 customers around 4 p.m., according to the Snohomish County Public Utility District.

Downed power lines and outages can be reported to the PUD at 425-783-1001 or 1-877-783-1001 or online at outagemap.snopud.com. The PUD recommends staying at least 30 feet away from power lines.

If power is out, do not use a barbecue for heat as it can be dangerous and deadly.
