(EARLIER COVERAGE: Our as-it-happened morning storm coverage with video and photos is here)

With all of West Seattle’s west/northwest-facing shoreline getting pounded by this morning’s high-tide/high-wind double-punch, and Lincoln Park has suffered some damage, shown in photos by Trileigh Tucker:

That hole in the top of the seawall was being checked out by Seattle Parks workers while Trileigh was there:

Parks’ media liaison Dewey Potter is checking for us to find out if any damage has been officially tallied in local parks so far. Meantime, Scott Bessho also shared photographs from the north side of Lincoln Park:

That was the most striking view – debris all over the north end of the waterfront trail, just before the park makes way for the south end of residential Beach Drive. We’ll add any information we get later about park damage. we also have another set of photos coming up that shows how it went at Constellation Park – this area’s most-popular wave-watching spot – this morning.

  2. Perhaps it is not damage, but a reclamation of what is owned.

  4. Yes, two white geese often hang out at the north end of the park. I hope they’re OK too.
