Eastside Fire & Rescue opened a warming shelter in downtown Issaquah on Thursday evening, as cold temperatures blasted the city.

Many residents spent the night after a rare ice storm in cold and darkness, as crews raced to restore power to the city. However, the push to restore power to Issaquah and other Western Washington communities could last several days.

EFR opened Station 71, 190 E. Sunset Way, near Issaquah City Hall as a warming shelter.

Meanwhile, Sammamish Plateau Water and Sewer District officials offered another emergency number for customers. The district is experiencing difficulties due to the widespread power outage. Customers should call 647-1627 to report water or sewer emergencies.
