Snow continues in Eastern Washington

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. - The National Weather Service began easing off its snow alerts last night, but says some snow could continue falling in parts of Eastern Washington.

Heavy snow fell in the Cascades mountains yesterday, and the state Department of Transportation planned traffic closures for avalanche control early this morning on both Snoqualmie and Stevens passes.

The weather service says traffic could remain difficult in the mountains through today.

In the lowlands of Western Washington, some heavy showers soaked the area once again yesterday, and caused a brand-new power outage.

A large tree toppled onto a power line about 7 p.m. cutting electricity to about 58-hundred customers in West Seattle.
