Puget Sound Energy crews are currently investigating an outage in Issaquah’s Olde Town neighborhood that initially left more than 6,800 people without power.

The outage occurred at 1:20 p.m. and by 3:22 p.m., PSE’s outage map showed that power had been fully restored. The PSE’s outage map online stated an estimated time of 3:30 p.m. for power to be fully restored to the area.

PSE spokesperson Janet Kim said the cause of the outage could be equipment failure, though they are not positive yet.

“It looks like they’re still investigating at this time,” she said shortly before 3 p.m.

The failed equipment PSE is investigating is within the West Issaquah Substation, which serves areas west of Issaquah and north of Interstate 90, Kim said.
