Over 1,300 customers are without power from east Lynden to Everson and parts of Nooksack as of 9:30 p.m. Wednesday following an outage that hit around 8 p.m., according to Puget Sound Energy.

Puget Sound Energy’s power outage map shows 1,382 customers affected, and lists the cause as “under investigation.” The website estimates power will be restored around 10 p.m. Wednesday.

This is a developing story. More information will be added when it is available.
