Update for Feb. 10th Here’s messages from various agencies:

Vashon Schools:

Due to a winter weather advisory and current hazardous road conditions, all VISD schools and activities will be canceled on Monday, February 11, 2019.

PSE Update:

The PSE outage map still shows significant Island power outages, and up to 500 customers still awaiting reconnection. Most Vashon outages are in the 1 to 10 household range, which could take a while for the crews to get to. There are several outages with 100+ customers down, such as Cedarhurst, Magnolia/Shawnee, South Maury, Spring Beach and Tahlequah. Crews are moving from outage to outage, with new crews coming to the island to replace the crews who have been here for the past while. Restoration times listed on the PSE Outage map are generally indicating noon tomorrow, February.

Even if you don’t see a crew in your neighborhood, crews are likely working at a substation or on a downed wire nearby that will restore your power. In some locations there’s extensive damage, so there may be multiple areas where equipment needs to be repaired or replaced before power can be restored.

PSE’s Emergency Coordination Center and local storm bases are open and coordinating restoration efforts. Their crews and servicemen are assisted by damage assessment teams, tree crews, safety crews, road flaggers and hundreds of support staff working to restore power.

As damage assessment and repair work continues, estimated restoration times will be updated as they are available on the outage map at and the myPSE app. PSE knows customers need this information to make plans and regular updates will be posted as crews make their assessments and start repairs.

If you’re still without power, PSE encourages you to stay safe:

* Always use flashlights instead of candles.

* Never touch or go within 35 feet of downed power lines because they might be energized.

Call PSE at 1-888-225-5773 or 911 to report problems.

(Sunday, Feb. 10 update) Due to persistent dangerous roadway conditions and a forecast for ongoing freezing temperatures and two more snow storms, King County Executive Dow Constantine directed Metro to continue to operate only routes on its Emergency Snow Network (ESN) on both Monday, Feb. 11, and Tuesday, Feb. 12. This will provide weekday service levels focused on only 60 high-ridership routes and shuttles. Metro continues to operate ESN service today, Feb. 10, using Sunday schedules.
