Weekend storm brings scattered outages to Plateau

A few hundred customers were still without power Monday morning, according to Puget Sound Energy.

Powerful wind and rain battered the Plateau this weekend, bringing down trees and causing scattered power outages of which some still remained by Monday.

According to Puget Sound Energy’s (PSE) outage map, several small outages still remained in the Plateau Monday morning.

In Enumclaw, crews were onsite for a power disruption affecting 40 customers caused by vegetation in the area of SE 424th St and SR 169 by 9:20 a.m. with an estimated restoring time of 11 a.m.

East of Krain, another 75 customers were still affected by several outages, though a repair crew was on-site for at least one of them.

In Buckley, crews were still assessing on an outage affecting around 60 power customers in the area of SR 410 and Entwhistle Road E. They’d started by 8:07 a.m. and the restoration time was yet to be determined. (A smaller outage on nearby Hinkleman Road E. was also still being assessed.)

More outages had more than 100 or so customers without power near Wilkeson, South Prairie and west Buckley.

A series of storm systems blew through the West Coast over the last week, with forecasters warning of winds in the Plateau reaching up to 35 mph with gusts up to 45 mph later in the weekend. A wind advisory, issued by the National Weather Service (NWS), extended from 5 a.m. to 6 p.m. last Sunday.

Because strong winds could continue Monday and Tuesday, PSE asked for patience while they work to safely restore power.
