Winds Down Trees, Cut Power to Washington State
SEATTLE (AP) — A strong weather system brought rain and gusty winds to Washington state that knocked out power, blew over trees and flooded roadways.
Brownsville Highway in Kitsap County was closed Thursday morning because of water over the road. Downed trees also forced the closure of other roads in the county.
Downed trees and power lines closed roads in Snohomish County. The Public Utility District was working to restore power for the City of Marysville and other parts of Snohomish County.
Crews with Seattle City Light were also working to restore power in several locations.
The Sounder Northline Trains No. 1703 and No. 1705 out of Everett were being held due to trees across the tracks.
The Chimacum School District closed on Thursday due to transportation problems. West Sound private and charter schools were on a two-hour delay or were closed.
