Sunday Storm Updates Here

November 6, 2022


9:30 PM Update: Here’s the latest update from Snohomish PUD posted to social media at 9:00 PM.

Crews are continuing to make progress tonight! Power is back on for another 7,000 people. We are estimating that 80% of customers will have power back on by 9 a.m. tomorrow morning. At that point, the remaining outages get more complicated and will take longer to repair, but we think we should have 90% of people back in power by 8 p.m. Monday. We will not stop working until power is back on for all.

The county-wide outage map shows 43,348 as of 9:15 PM. From the latest snip of the Everett Map it looks like still around 4000 without power. Many have been without power for more than 48 hours. For some power has come on and then gone off again. Another reminder there are still intersections where the traffic lights are not working and those are to be considered 4-way stops. Everett High School will be closed Monday. All other Everett Schools will be open per a message just out from the District. We’ll update again in the morning. Hang in there. – LD.

10:30 AM Update: Snohomish PUD continues to make progress and more crews from outside utilities have been brought in to help. Latest update from PUD Outage Map shows 68,000 still to go across Sno County. Here is the snip of the latest Everett Map and also an update just issued by Snohomish PUD.

SnoPUD crews and mutual aid crews from around the state have been working for the past 36 hours to get power restored as quickly and safely as possible.

In that time, we’ve restored power to more than 120,000 customers across Snohomish County and Camano Island. We will continue to work today and tomorrow on restoration efforts until all customers are restored.

Thank you for your patience as our crews continue their job.

Editor’s note: After heavy rains overnight, there are places with standing water and pooling. Slow down if you are out and about. Hearing of a fair amount of hydroplaning and spinouts this morning.

7:30 AM Update: In this morning from Snohomish PUD

Major Wind Event Causes Damage Throughout County

The largest storm event in years swept through Snohomish County late Friday, November 4, resulting in over 190,000 outages at its peak. Crews have been working around the clock to restore power to customers.

In the first 24-hours, we’ve been able to restore power to over 100,000 customers, but extensive damage has made progress slow in many areas.

Mutual aid crews have come in from utilities from across the pacific northwest to help us with restoration efforts. However, because the damage is so great, in some areas, it may take days to get power back on for customers.

Thank you for your patience and support while our crews work hard to get the power back on!

Tips to Help Get Through an Outage

• 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.
• Don’t drive through road closures. this puts you and our crews in danger.
• Stay informed with the PUD outage map, Facebook and Twitter posts, and our updates to local radio news and TV stations.
• Report outages via our online Outage Center or by phone to 425-783-1001.
• Make plans if you have special medical needs. Use a back-up generator or make arrangements with family or friends to get to a location with electricity.

Stay at least 30 FEET AWAY from all fallen power lines. Assume they are live and very dangerous!
