Crow Causes Downtown Everett Power Outage

October 10, 2016



Artist depiction of what may have happened just prior to the power outage.

A crow was the cause of a power outage this morning that put 2400 Everett PUD customers in the dark.

Downtown Everett and the Waterfront were the primary areas affected.

Snohomish PUD Media tells around 8 o’clock this morning a crow flew into some equipment on top of a power pole downtown. That’s all it took.

Power has now been restored for all customers. (funny, usually its a squirrel that causes these things)
