Kelly Oling uses her phone to find some flour in a dark aisle at the University Village QFC in Seattle, which is still open despite its power outage Saturday. Power has been out since 11 a.m., and perishables are closed, but generators provide light near the registers. Gusts of more than 60 mph were reached in parts of Seattle, temporarily closing the 520 bridge and knocking out power to at least 200,000 customers in the region.
