The Clallam County Public Utility District has been restoring power to those who lost it because of fuses blown or other issues, said PUD spokesman Mick Howe.
SEQUIM — Most customers who lost power at about 9:30 a.m. today were back on the grid by 10:30 a.m., said a Clallam County Public Utility District spokesman.
The outage affected all of Sequim and Blyn, said Mike Howe, PUD spokesman.
It was caused by a problem on a Bonneville Power Administration transmission line between the Fairmont and Happy Valley substations, Howe said.
Power remains out for some customers, he said, adding he didn't know when power would be restored for them.
He did not know how many were initially affected nor how many still lack power.
Electrical power flickered at 9:30 a.m. in Port Angeles, and shut down computers in some homes and businesses.
