Close to 2,000 Bellevue buildings still without power

Approximately 2,000 households are still without power following Sunday’s snowstorm.

Homes throughout Bellevue’s many neighborhoods were without power as of 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, according to Puget Sound Energy’s outage map. More than 10,000 customers originally lost power in the storm.

The majority of those were due to downed trees and vegetation that had affected power lines.

Roads throughout Bellevue were also closed because of fallen trees. Power poles that collapsed along Southeast Newport Way could keep the street closed for three days. Portions of Bel-Red Road, 132nd Avenue Northeast, 105th Avenue Southeast, Southeast 25th Street and NE 26th Place were also closed as of Tuesday afternoon.

The last customers in north King County may not see their power restored until noon on Feb. 10.

People seeing downed power lines should call PSE at 1-888-225-5773 or 911 to report problems. For the latest on road closures, go to www.bellevuewa.gov/emergencies-extreme-weather.htm.
