    Some arterial streets in Bellevue remained closed Monday morning after a windstorm early Sunday knocked down trees, which brought down power lines with them. More than 300 Bellevue residents were still out of power Monday morning.

    Puget Sound Energy was working Monday to clear downed lines from Northeast Eighth Street (closed between 96th Avenue Northeast and Northeast First Street) and Northup Way (closed between Northeast Eighth and 10th streets).

    Drivers and pedestrians should travel with extra caution.
