High winds knock down utility pole in Poulsbo

Powerlines down at Myrvang and Iverson

Blustery weather wreaked havoc all across Kitsap County on Tuesday, Jan. 7 downing power lines and tree limbs causing traffic backups and knocking out power to homes and businesses.

A portion of Myrvang Place near its intersection with Iverson Road has been blocked off due to a downed power line that still has live wires providing power to nearby homes.

Around 2 p.m. Poulsbo firefighter Jim Whitsett said the downed power line had a feeder wire that was still live and crews were waiting for the power line to completely snap and then make the effort to clear the area to allow traffic to safely go through and return power to residents in the area. In the meantime, out of an abundance of caution, this section of Myrvang has been closed off to public access, folks whose driveways are in this closed-off area are encouraged not to leave or return to their homes until the fire department has given the ok.

The North Kitsap School District has contacted parents whose children would be dropped off at the regular bus stop on Iverson to arrange for pick up at school or to be picked up at a different drop off location.
