6:10 PM: How serious is the thunder/lightning that’s moving through our area, the second bout today? So serious, the Seahawks-49ers game at CenturyLink Field has just been temporarily suspended for safety reasons. The National Weather Service says “scattered” thunderstorms are expected through this evening – bringing with them cloudbursts like yet another one we’re seeing and hearing right now (and the one recorded earlier in our brief Instagram clip above). No power outages in West Seattle so far – just flickers – but the City Light map shows scattered small outages elsewhere in the city.
6:22 PM: NWS has issued a “short-term forecast” saying this wave of storms, with “frequent dangerous lightning,” is expected to continue until about 7 pm.
6:46 PM: Since pets unfortunately can get spooked and bolt during thunderstorms, we want to make sure you’re aware that WSB hosts the only West Seattle-specific page for lost-and-found pets. Just got word of two more reunions, in fact. E-mail info (and a photo if you have one) to email@example.com.
7:23 PM: The weather has quieted and the Seahawks game has resumed.
