Power was restored to about 300 utility customers east of Port Angeles on Saturday after winds gusting to 50 mph flattened trees, knocked power poles to the ground and left some shoppers standing in the dark Friday.
Clallam County Public Utility District officials said downed power poles in the Agnew area left many without power for up to 25 hours. There were also scattered outages in the West End of the county.
The storm raged across Clallam and Jefferson counties early Friday. Gusts of 49 mph were recorded at the Hood Canal Bridge shortly after 11:30 a.m.
Some residents reported the winds were so strong that their houses shook.
A driver swerved off the road as the power poles fell, but was able to avoid being hit by the 40-foot-tall poles.
A man on state Highway 112 13 miles east of Neah Bay was equally lucky Friday morning when a tree crashed onto his pickup truck. The man, according to the State Patrol, was uninjured.
In Port Townsend the storm was most evident on the waterfront where winds ripped an old train trestle and a dockside business from their moorings and tossed roof panels like playing cards.
A 31-foot ketch in dry dock was damaged when part of a building roof blew down on it.
