Customers in the Mains Farm, Gales Addition and Kitchen-Dick areas experienced a power outage starting at about 8 p.m., said Mike Howe, PUD spokesman.
Power was restored at about 9:35 p.m.
District crews suspect the outage started near the Dungeness substation when multiple tree limbs ripped from trees by high winds contacted power lines, Howe said.
“We had horrendous winds [Monday] night,” Howe said
A tree felled by loggers caused a power outage that affected more than 14,000 residents of Sequim and Blyn on Monday morning, with power completely restored to all district customers by 1 p.m.
The felled tree touched a Bonneville Power Administration transmission line between the Fairmount substation in Discovery Bay and the Happy Valley substation, Howe said Monday.
