View Comments

SEATTLE (AP) — High winds early Monday have knocked out power for about 8,000 Puget Sound Energy customers in south King County and Thurston County.

Spokeswoman Julia Hughes says there are 60 outages in the area including Auburn, Federal Way and Olympia.

The Bellevue-based utility has dispatched 100 crews and hopes to have customers back on line later Monday, depending on the extent of the damage.
