NORTH KITSAP — A steady rain swelled creeks and created standing water on roadways Saturday and Sunday. Rain gave way to drizzle Sunday afternoon.

A weather station at Poulsbo's Central Market recorded 0.83 inches of rain Saturday and another 0.93 inches by 2 p.m. Sunday.

A tree fell on power lines in the Miller Bay area at about 10 a.m. Sunday morning, killing electricity to about 1,700 customers, Puget Sound Energy spokesman Roger Thompson said. Power was restored at about 1:30 p.m.

Cars were splashing through several inches of water on westbound Indianola Road Sunday morning.

More flooding issues were reported in Central and South Kitsap. Flooding closed southbound State Route 3 in Bremerton Sunday near the Loxie Eagans exit.

The National Weather Service warned heavy rain in Western Washington could increase the chance of landslides. A flood watch will remain in effect through Monday afternoon.

North Kitsap residents can expect sporadic rain through Thursday, according to the National Weather Service forecast.
