Trees Take Out Powerlines in Bellevue

This tree came down in front of our vehicle near NE 24th St this afternoon while traveling northbound on West Lake Sammamish Pkwy SE. It was due to heavy wind gusts that have affected the area all morning. The trees hit the power lines across the street, but did not cause a spark. We called 911 and stayed on the scene until power company and Bellevue Fire responded. There are no known injuries at this point, but please avoid the are for the next couple of hours.
