Good afternoon All,
We wanted to get a quick update out on the windstorm. The wind started pretty good this morning and still continues to gust at this time. Power was lost at approximately 11am, and is still out. Based on the outages throughout Whatcom County, it could be a while before power is restored. We are in the preliminary stages of storm assessment, with clearing the main roads taking priority. We will continue to assess damages to individual properties and notify Members as time allows, which looks like it will take well into tomorrow. There are quite a few branches down and they continue to fall. We’ve also had reports of power lines and trees down on the surrounding roadways in eastern Whatcom County. More info to follow as it becomes available….
