SEATTLE (AP) - Officials say more than 10,000 customers around western Washington remained without power following blustery, rainy weather.

The National Weather Service in Seattle had issued a wind advisory for western Washington and surrounding areas until 9 p.m. Tuesday. Wind gusts around 60 mph were reported in some areas.

Puget Sound Energy reported about 60,000 customers without power at Tuesday evening but that number was down to about 10,000 by Wednesday morning. In their coverage area, they say Kitsap County sustained the most damage. Fire officials in the town of Poulsbo, in Kitsap County, say a woman was taken to a hospital with serious injuries and the rest of her family was displaced after a tree slammed into their home.
