SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle City Light says a wind storm has caused scattered power outages as it moved through the Seattle area on Sunday.

More than 18, 000 customers were without power for at least part of the day, in both the north and sound ends of Seattle City Light’s service territory.

The National Weather Service in Seattle issued a wind advisory Sunday from Bellingham to south of Olympia, while a gale advisory was issued for coastal communities.

A cold front moving through Western Washington was expected to produce periods of sustained winds up to 39 mph, with gusts to 50 mph through the afternoon.
