Washington winds cause power outages



SEATTLE (AP) — High winds from Tuesday’s storm knocked out power for some people on the Washington coast and northwest interior.

At the peak, Puget Sound Energy had about 10,000 customers out of service, scattered in Whatcom, Skagit and Island counties. Spokeswoman Dorothy Bracken says repair crews responded to about 100 locations.

The Grays Harbor PUD had about 1,200 customers out of service for a time because of the weather. KBKW reports crews restored service to outages at Tokeland, Moclips and Taholah.
