West Seattle power outage: 157 homes in Genesee area

3:42 PM: One Genesee Hill area resident says she heard a “boom” – then the power went out. The outage wasn’t on the City Light map when we got that note, but it is now: 157 homes affected, with restoration expected by early evening. The cause is listed as “bird/animal.”

5:13 PM NOTE: Back on, according to commenters AND the City Light map. (The image above is a screengrab of the map, before the power was restored.)

    Our power is on, just north of there, but cable is out. Is anybody else having this problem?

    second time in 2 months for me. Better go buy a Lotto ticket! Power was restored at 3:45.

    Outage is still on City Light’s map… Fwiw.

    No longer there TR. City Light just doesn’t operate at any where near the warp speed WS Blog does! ;-)

    I hope it was a raccoon that met his maker.

Sorry, comment time is over.
