SNOHOMISH COUNTY, Wash., January 13, 2021 – Over ninety-five thousand residences are without power throughout Snohomish County. Because of the extent of the outage, Snohomish County Public Utility District is not providing an Estimated Time of Restoration (ETR) but did state that service restoration times will vary by location and condition.

The scene in Lynnwood early this morning.

According to a post on its Twitter account, below is the priority to restore service:

  1. High-voltage transmission levels which affect substations that serve large numbers of customers, hospitals, schools and businesses.
  2. Oil spills from transformers, wires blocking main highways and other down wires.
  3. Substation main line circuits that serve neighborhoods and/or businesses.
  4. Smaller outages such as transformer malfunctions or fallen service lines that serve a few homes.
  5. Outages impacting non-essential streetlights.

Snohomish County PUD attributes the power outage to last night’s stormy weather. Crews began restoration efforts last night  If your power is out, report it to 425-783-1001 or on PUD’s outage map at http://outagemap.snopud.com.
