A large tree fell for unknown reasons this morning, August 29th, about 11:30am and struck several power lines as it laid across Ferndale Road just north of Marine Drive.

The road was closed to through traffic between Slater Road and Marine Drive while Puget Sound Energy crews worked to remove the fallen tree and repair the damaged power lines.

By mid-afternoon, the tree remained across the road and power lines and 9 PSE customers remained without power with an estimate of 10pm to restore power.
