Crews work to restore power after windstorms

SEATTLE (AP) — Crews have been working to restore power to thousands of residents in Washington and Oregon following a weekend windstorm.

Puget Sound Energy said Sunday that since the peak of the storm it had restored electricity to 147,000 customers. It said that as of 2:30 p.m., about 148,000 customers remained without power.

The utility reported downed power lines and poles and substation outages.

Other utilities in the two states also were working to get the power to others.

The National Weather Service in Seattle says the storm brought winds that registered gusts of about 60 mph (96 kph) at Sea-Tac Airport in Washington.
