Thousands of people are without power in western Washington state after high winds swept through overnight, and the National Weather Service says more strong winds are expected.

The weather service said Monday that many areas will continue to see gusts topping 50 mph (80 kmh), with even stronger winds on the coast and in north-central and northeastern Washington.

Puget Sound Energy reported having 15,000 customers without power Monday morning, with scattered outages also affecting Seattle, Tacoma and elsewhere.
