The number of customers without power because of this weekend's storm is now 38. Major progress being made.

(SHELTON, WA) -- A morning windstorm packing 50+ MPH winds caused outages for over 11,500 Mason PUD 3 customers today. PUD 3 is now down to 38 small, scattered outages. The largest is found on Auseth Lane & Valley Rose Drive. There is a damaged power line that runs cross country (doesn't follow an established road) that serves 22 customers in this area. When crews investigated it last night, they determined repairs needed to happen in daylight. Now that the sun is coming up, they are on their way (as of 8:00 AM).

At the height of the damage, areas affected include:

  • Agate
  • Angleside
  • Arcadia
  • Bloomfield Road
  • Cloquallum
