PUD Outage map as of 11 PM Friday night.

As of 11:00 PM there were more than 125,000 customers out of power in Snohomish County per the PUD outage map. The PUD is asking you to report outages online through their outage map and not via phone. If you power is out try using your phone to get to the outage map link here. Click on the red tab to report power outage.

Transformers have blown across the Everett, Washington and lines are down. Please treat every downed line as live and do not approach. If a line comes down over your vehicle try to stay in your vehicle if it is safe to do so.

Everett Emergency Management has activated CERT or Community Emergency Response Team volunteers to monitor areas where lines are down so fire crews can go to calls.

Do not go out if you can possibly help it as it is very dangerous around Everett with power continuing to go out and lines falling.

Please do not call 911 to report power outages or ask when the power will come back on. Save that for emergencies like actual fires.

Here are storm tips from the City of Everett. We’ll monitor and update as we can.

We encourage you to prepare as well! Here are ways to do that:
Build an emergency preparedness kit
Stay informed: Follow us on Twitter & facebook.
We also provide updates to local news radio.
Have a backup plan: Designate an out-of-area contact phone number and alternate meeting place for your family.
Protect food by keeping your fridge and freezer doors closed as much as possible.
Never use a gas stove or charcoal grill inside. Carbon monoxide kills.
Special medical needs? Consider a backup generator, and set up another place to stay with friends/family for support.
Stay far away from fallen power lines
Make sure you have fresh batteries for flashlights. Always exercise extreme caution if you use candles or oil lamps. Never leave them unattended and keep them away from furniture, drapes, and other flammable materials.
