The wind was howling as pellets of hail and rain dropped to the ground all over Lake Stevens and most of Western Washington on Monday, Nov. 15 and throughout the night.
Many residents were without power. According to Snohomish PUD 5,400 homes in Lake Stevens were powerless Monday and Tuesday at any given time.
Lake Connor Park, a private recreational community on 28th St. NE just east of Machias Rd. and downtown Lake Stevens, saw extensive damage.
Trees with root bases of over six feet were ripped from the ground bringing down fences and destroying recreational vehicles and even a swimming pool within the park.
Branches and debris were strewn all over the roads along with various items left in the yards of many homeowners.
The City did see debris from trees and one street light went down, however, there were no reports of damage to property, Mick Monken, Director of Public Works for the City of Lake Stevens said.
Many are gearing up for more storms, including snow, and high winds as winter kicks into full gear.
