“Thurston, Pierce and south King counties are the heaviest hit, according to PSE spokesperson Terri-Ann Betancourt.”
“Hospitals and medical services are the highest priority for restoring service, Betancourt said.
After that, crews strive for the “most bang for the buck,” repairs that will restore the most customers per job, she said,” as reported by The Olympian.
Ed. Note: That means the priority after Lacey will be Yelm, McKenna & Roy in Thurston County. The Lake Lawrence & Bald Hills areas may not have electricity restored until later in the weekend.
Suggestion: Driving to gas stations in Parkland, which are open and have no lines, may be preferable to waiting over one hour + at the Red Wind Rez Mart for fuel.
