PSE: Power restored for all

Puget Sound Energy says it has restored power to all of its customers as of this morning.

Spokeswoman Terri-Ann Betancourt said crews restored the last outages around dawn this morning. Crews have been working nonstop since last week’s snowstorm and the more recent high winds left hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses in Western Washington without electricity.

At one point, nearly 460,000 of the utility’s 1.1 million customers were in the dark, and hundreds of crews from Washington and surrounding states struggled to untangle a jumble of power lines downed by ice and falling trees.
