Windstorm strikes region

Windstorm strikes region

Some arterial streets in Bellevue remained closed Monday morning after a windstorm early Sunday knocked down trees, which brought down power lines with them. More than 300 Bellevue residents were still out of power Monday morning.

Puget Sound Energy was working Monday to clear downed lines from Northeast Eighth Street (closed between 96th Avenue Northeast and Northeast First Street) and Northup Way (closed between Northeast Eighth and 10th streets). 

Drivers and pedestrians should travel with extra caution.

  • Be prepared: Information is available at Emergency Preparedness. Preparedness tips are also available at Take Winter by Storm.

  • Call Puget Sound Energy at 1-888-225-5773 to report a power outage; you can also report it online and check PSE's outage map;

  • When driving, if the power is out and traffic signals are not working, treat the intersection as a four-way stop.

For emergency information and tips, check Extreme Weather Response and the city's Twitter page.
