[ARCHIVED] National Weather Service Issued a Wind Advisory

Wind Advisory

This notice is from Puget Sound Energy (PSE) regarding the wind advisory. 

PSE is closely watching the weather forecast and are prepared to respond to potential power outages in our service area. Our crews are ready to deploy with assignments when outages occur and as soon as it’s safe.

As we prepare for storm conditions, we encourage our customers to do the same:

  • Make sure to have emergency supplies at home and in your vehicle, such as extra batteries, flashlights, and food.
  • Have a battery-powered radio ready to go.
  • Charge cell phones, laptops, and other devices in case the power goes out.
  • Avoid opening and closing refrigerators and freezers more often than necessary. A closed refrigerator will stay cold for up to 12 hours.
  • Turn off lights and unplug all appliances and sensitive electronic equipment, such as computers, to prevent an overload on your circuits when electric service is restored. Leave one light on to let you know when service returns.
  • Download the myPSE app to track and report outages, check the status and get estimated restoration times, or visit

Storm safety tips:

  • Never touch downed power lines because they might be energized. Stay at least 35 feet away from any downed line and call PSE at 1-888-225-5773 or 911 to report problems.
  • Do not use a charcoal or gas grill for cooking indoors. Never use a natural gas range for heating or charcoal as an indoor heating source. This can cause a buildup of poisonous carbon monoxide gas.
  • If you choose to use a portable home generator, read the manufacturer’s instructions for the safe operation of the generator. Do not operate generators indoors or in enclosed spaces to avoid the build-up of carbon monoxide.
  • If you’re using portable heaters, keep them away from furniture, draperies, and other flammable materials.
  • Always use flashlights instead of candles.
