SEATTLE (AP) -- Utility officials say crews were working through the night to help restore power to thousands of customers west of Seattle after another round of strong winds. The gusts over 50 mph on Tuesday felled trees and power lines and mostly affected the Kitsap Peninsula, where Puget Sound Energy reported about 200 outages affecting more than 40,000 customers.
