If y'all don't see me here tomorrow this is why! Potentially damaging wind storm coming tomorrow 04:22 PM PDT on Wednesday, October 17, 2007 KING5.com Staff Raw: Governor Chris Gregoire is urging citizens to be prepared for power outages. SEATTLE A potentially destructive wind storm continues to move towards the Pacific Northwest and is expected to hit Thursday. The latest models show the storm is tracking towards the southern part of Vancouver Island and the northern Washington coast. Even though it likely won't be as strong as the December 14, 2006 wind storm that knocked out power to over 1 million customers, it could be very damaging because of all the leaves and limbs still on the trees this time of year.
