Did You Experience A Power Outage In Lynnwood? You May Be Able To Get Compensation!

Losing power is never fun, regardless of the season. Unfortunately, due to the rainy and windy weather in the Pacific Northwest, and Snohomish County are common. And if the power outage lasts for an extended period of time, you can incur extra expenses due to food spoilage, and even lost wages if you are unable to go to work.

In addition to a general power outage, it is highly likely you will also have an internet outage, which would prevent you from trying to work from home.

This guide will show you how to check for, and report, outages in Lynnwood and Snohomish County, as well as how to seek compensation on your own or with the help of DoNotPay.

How can you Check for a Snohomish County Power Outage?

If you lose power and are in Lynnwood, or other cities in Snohomish County, such as Marysville, Everett, or Lake Stevens, you can go to the Snohomish County PUD Outage Center website, located here, where you can report an outage or check the current Snohomish County power outage map.

How can you get Compensated for an Outage?

A lot of unplanned expenses can come up as a result of a power outage. In all likelihood, you will have to replace all of your food, which is definitely not cheap, and if you have medication that has to be refrigerated, that will need to be replaced as well. You might even need to replace appliances that were damaged as a result of a power surge when the outage is resolved. And whether you work from home or the office, an extended power outage can result in missed work and lost wages.

If you wish to file a claim against Snohomish County PUD for expenses related to a power outage, go to their website, located here, for information on what is needed, as well as where to send it.
