SEATTLE – Thousands of Western Washington residents remained in the dark more than 24 hours since Monday night’s windstorm.

As of noon Wednesay, an estimated 3,500 customers were still without power, down from a total of more than 200,000 at the height of the storm.

The majority of those still in the dark Wednesday were Snohomish PUD customers. More outages were in the north part of the county than in the south. There is no estimate on when all of the power will be restored.

Puget Sound Energy reports the lights are back on for all of their customers, and Grays Harbor PUD says 70 customers are without power because of a downed power line in the area of Bowes Road. Power was expected to be restored by 1 p.m.

Peninsula Light reported it had about 1,500 customers without power Tuesday night.
