West Seattle storm scenes: The water, then the wind

Our stormy day had two distinct phases – in the morning, it was all about the water, including the mini-lake in WSB contributing photojournalist Nick Adams‘ image from SW Barton Street. In the afternoon, it was all about the wind:

The tree-buried SUV was in Sunrise Heights, in the 7100 block of 32nd SW; head-on, it was almost completely out of sight.

Other toppled trees were featured in our afternoon coverage.

Tomorrow’s forecast: Rain at times, but mostly in the afternoon, so the morning commute, at least, shouldn’t resemble anything like today.

  1. Just out of curiosity, are you sure about the name “Sunrise Heights?” I grew up on the block of 7100 32nd sw. We called it Olympic Heights.

  2. @dsa, I’m on 28th and Myrtle (7100 bock of 28th) and on the King County Parecl Viewer photo of my house from 1946, Sunrise Heights is clearly written by hand at the bottom. It’s amazing how many names there are for little pocket neighborhoods within neighborhoods. I lived my whole life on 26th, just off of Delridge, near the golf course, and had no idea it was called Cottage Grove until I was an adult.
