Many South Enders were left without power over Thanksgiving weekend as high winds knocked down trees and power lines.
Puget Sound Energy officials say there were “small scattered power outages” that occurred in both North and South Whidbey. Most weather-caused outages occurred on Thanksgiving day and Friday, Nov. 25. Impacted areas include parts of Freeland and southern Langley.
The amount of South Enders without power at the various locations “ranged from one customer to about 85 customers.” Officials said most service was restored within two and four hours.
The largest outage, which impacted 85 people, was in Langley on Thanksgiving day due to a fallen tree. Officials say power crews not only needed to restring the downed power line, but had to repair the equipment that holds the power line in place.
