PSE reported over 56,000 of their customers throughout Puget Sound are with out power as of 12pm today. That number includes several thousand impacted by scatter outages all over western Whatcom County.

As a result of the number of outages, PSE is not providing an estimate for when to expect power to be restored.

A large outage in north Ferndale has left 1000 without power since 9:20am this morning and another 1000 have been without power across Lummi Island and the eastern two-thirds of the Lummi Peninsula since before 6am.
