Puget Sound Energy reported early Friday that most power outages that affected the area around Snoqualmie and North Bend have been resolved. There are still several dozen or so customers without area, the utility’s outage map reported.

Crews were still working late Thursday night, to restore power to more than 1,000 customers.

On Thursday afternoon, about 2,000 people were without power across the region.

The outages began after North Bend was hit with ice Wednesday, downing trees and knocking down power lines.
