Wind causes some local damage

Some minor storms have blown through Marysville-Arlington recently, with more, of course, expected as winter approaches.

The worst that happened was a tree being blown over in Arlington, falling on top of a recreation vehicle, city spokeswoman Kristin Banfield said.

The 9-1-1 call came in about 3 a.m. Monday. The RV was parked next to a residence in the 17000 block of 91st Avenue NE. The tree struck the back of the RV hitting an occupant. The man was able to get himself out of the RV and was transported to Cascade Valley Hospital by Arlington Fire with non-life threatening injuries.

Meanwhile, Snohomish County Public Utility District reported 2,000 homes were without power in the Marysville area. A police officer was at Grove and State directing traffic as the traffic light was out. Other outages were reported from 128th to 3rd. Winter sports practices were canceled at Marysville-Pilchuck High School due to outages. Marysville School District put out information that if power lines are down bus routes will change or riders will be returned to school to keep them safe.

The Marysville Fire Department reminded the public to stay safe by steering clear of downed power lines. If you don’t have an emergency kit ready, put one together. And treat dark traffic signals as a four-way stop. Report power outages to 1-800-783-1001 or 425-783-1001. For a map of outages, go to outagemap.snopud.com.
