OLYMPIA, Wash.  -  High winds overnight knocked down trees and power lines in the south Puget Sound area -- Pierce, Thurston and Lewis counties.

The Transportation Department says they blocked sections of Highway 507, Highway 702, Highway 161 and Highway 165, in addition to lanes of I-Five. Highway crews worked with state troopers and Puget Sound Energy to clear roadways. Three school districts in Lewis County are canceling classes today because of power outages and downed power lines and trees. They are the Pe Ell, Adna and Boistfort school districts.
