Thursday Power Update Shows Under 50 Outages In Everett, Less Than 1200 Across County

November 10, 2022


Less than 50 customers out of power as of Thursday afternoon in Everett.

Everett Public Works crews today cleaning up storm damage in the 1800 block of Colby.

It’ll cost more than $300,000.00 to replace the poles and netting at Legion Golf Course to keep errant golf balls from the EvCC Campus.

Update 4:15 PM Thursday 11/10/2022: Snohomish PUD and their mutual aid partners are getting closer to full restoration of power following last Friday’s windstorm. Right now the PUD Outage Map shows fewer than 50 customers in Everett without power and less than 1200 county-wide. Snohomish PUD says it will still be until tomorrow for some folks but they will continue non-stop until everyone is back.

City of Everett Crews were cleaning up major damage from fallen trees around the city including on Hewitt next to Everpark and in the 1800 Block of Colby which has been shut down for days after a tree in the median crashed onto vehicles and porches bringing down power lines.

Cleanup efforts are beginning throughout Everett, Washington and they are going to be expensive. Wednesday night the Everett City Council voted to declare an emergency and waive competitive bidding and award a contract for more than $300,000.00 to a company to replace the netting and poles at the southeast side of Legion Memorial Golf Course next to the EvCC Early Learning Center. The Center has been unavailable since the storm came through Friday night and there is no set date for opening. A note on the Center’s webpage says it will be closed all this week and the college is in touch with families using the facility. It may be some time until the protection from golf balls can be put back into place. Word from the Parks Department during the City Council meeting is that it may take weeks.

A reminder from Snohomish County Public Works that Solid Waste facilities are still temporarily not accepting green waste and wood debris. You can still use your bin at your house but the amount of fallen wood debris exceeds the capacity of the bins in most cases. Here’s the suggestion from Snohomish County.

Recent windstorms have brought down trees and branches, creating excess yard debris for Snohomish County residents. There are many local composting businesses ready to accept yard debris. Due to ongoing rail and container issues, Snohomish County Solid Waste transfer stations and drop boxes are temporarily not accepting these items. This change does not affect curbside pickup.

“We know that many people were inundated with yard debris after our recent windstorm. Eleven business locations in or near Snohomish County are accepting yard debris, and we want to make sure people know that there are good local options,” Snohomish County Public Works Director Kelly Snyder said. “Make sure you check the location, as well as days and hours of operation, before you travel to drop off your load of debris.”

Snohomish County continues to work closely with Republic Services, Burlington Northern and Santa Fe Railway (BNSF), Waste Management, and local solid waste haulers to find a resolution to ongoing rail service and container issues.

County officials continue to urge residents to reduce, reuse, recycle reusable items. Donating household items, books or clothing that are reusable to thrift stores or other outlets such as selling on community classifieds or market-place community groups online are always a better alternative than throwing them away.
