Puget Sound Energy has reported 302 of their customers in western Ferndale lost power just before 4pm today. The cause is currently unknown. PSE, applying their 2 hour standard duration, estimates power being restored by 6pm.

This area was previously impacted by a power outage on October 14th when, during a wind storm, a tree fell across Grandview Road taking out power lines.

PSE reports all impacted customers have had their power restored.

Update 10:45pm
The number of impacted customers is down to 109. Progress is definitely happening. The current estimate for restoring power is 10:35pm so, again, perhaps “any time now.”
