BREMERTON, Wash. Puget Sound Energy crews continued to work on Thanksgiving to get power restored to Kitsap County.
Monday's storm brought dozens of trees and power lines down across the county, causing more than 50,000 households to lose power. View PSE's Flickr photo album of the aftermath of the storm here.
Thursday morning, Dorothy Bracken with Puget Sound Energy reported most of those homes have power once again, but there may still be pockets of customers without power around Kitsap County. There was no estimate of how many homes remain without power.
Bracken said three dozen or more crews continue to work to get the power restored today.
Bracken said PSEencourages customers to call if their power remains out, 1-888-225-5773.
As of Wednesday night, there were still about 13,000 homes without power around Kitsap County.
Puget Sound Energy said late Wednesday that it hoped to have everyone back on the grid by midnight.
Some 500 workers from all over the Northwest are trying to mend snapped lines. Brad Frazier, from Idaho, started working at 5 a.m. Tuesday and has gotten little sleep since then.
I think they geared pretty good to get as many people as they can in there to get it back up before Thanksgiving, said Frazier. He says he's not counting on making it back home in time to be with his family.
For those still without power, there is a warming shelter at the Kitsap County Fairgrounds.
