Saturday Afternoon Everett Storm Update

November 5, 2022


Update 4:00PM Saturday November 5th:

Here’s a snapshot of the PUD outage map for Everett Saturday afternoon just before 3:30 PM.

  • Still a long way to go but crews from Snohomish PUD continue to make progress. Overall outage in Snohomish County down to 100,000 (from a high of 190,000) and around 7,000 in the Everett City limits at this writing.
  • Burglars struck a retail marijuana store on Evergreen Way. Smashed door glass and break-ins were also discovered at multiple retail businesses on Colby and Rucker between 41st street and 35th street overnight.
  • According to the National Weather Service wind gusts in Everett varied between 23mph and 48 mph Friday night between 6:30 PM and 11:30PM
  • CERT (Community Emergency Response Teams) were called into action by the Everett Emergency Managers to help keep people away from live wires down around the city
    This was a significant storm event and Snohomish PUD has nearly three-dozen crews out working to restore power across Snohomish County. Here’s a chart showing the order in which PUD works to restore power.

    Trees were a problem as many with shallow roots simply fell over. Others had branches break off landing on cars, porches and houses and bringing live power lines down along with them. Areas of north Everett between 1700 and 2400 to the north and south and Grand to Walnut west to east were hit quite hard. Here are a few photos of a large tree that came apart in the 1800 block of Colby. Thanks to Brenda Humbert for the photos. Click to enlarge.
