Downed trees prompted a road closure in rural Preston, King County transportation officials announced Wednesday morning.
The road closure at 308th Avenue Southeast, at mile south of Southeast 64th Street, is about two miles north from the Preston Athletic Fields & Park.
King County Road Services Division officials did not offer estimates for reopening in the 6:30 a.m. update.
The closure occurred after strong winds caused another round of power outages across the region, less than a week after residents in the Issaquah area and throughout Western Washington faced icy conditions and lengthy power outages following a snowstorm and rare ice storm.
County transportation officials urged motorists to monitor the road closure list throughout the day for updates about the Preston closure and other issues.
