West Seattle power outage: 157 homes in Genesee area

September 14, 2012 at 3:42 pm | In Utilities, West Seattle news | 5 Comments

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.)

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

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