About 1,000 Kitsap County customers without power Friday morning

PORT ORCHARD — A blustery windstorm Friday morning has resulted in nearly 1,000 customers without power in Kitsap County.

Puget Sound Energy has sent crews out into areas of South Kitsap and Poulsbo to restore energy to homes and businesses. The winter winds kicked up after midnight with sustained winds between 20 and 30 miles per hour, according to the National Weather Service. Gusts reached up to 50 mph. A high-wind advisory was to expire at 10 a.m. Friday.

The Southworth area of South Kitsap has 241 customers without power, PSE reported. Sedgwick Road was closed due to a downed tree, necessitating a detour on Mile Hill Road for Washington State Ferries commuters heading to the Southworth dock.

Small outage pockets affected customers in the Lidstrom Road E. area, South Colby and along Bethel Road in Port Orchard. Bremerton’s Chico Way NW area also has 282 PSE customers without power, the utility reported.

In Poulsbo along Pioneer Way NW, 249 PSE customers were without power as of 9:45 a.m. Friday.
