Update: West Seattle power outage in south Morgan Junction

October 31, 2013 at 5:41 pm | In Utilities, West Seattle news | 5 Comments

5:41 PM: Kati reports, “Our townhouse complex near California and Myrtle is without power – heard a pop and a flash.” She’s the only report so far, and there’s nothing on the Seattle City Light outage map – though we know from the PREVIOUS outage, there are old “feeders” in this area (slated for replacement within the next two years) and that means SCL doesn’t know you’re out unless you call. Let us know if you’re affected.

6:03 PM UPDATE: It’s now on the City Light map (screengrab above) – 26 customers (each customer could be a home, a business, a building, so the number of people affected is invariably higher than the “customer” number). Cause not yet known; restoration guesstimate, 8:30ish.

10:36 PM UPDATE: Update from Kati in comments – the power’s back.

  1. Might be an isolated outage as we at Second Gear Sports have power. Looks as if Thriftway, Domino’s Pizza, Shell all have power.

  3. Sitting here quietly, enjoying some beautiful candlelight, unplugged time with pets…. and grateful that the electricity will come back eventually and that WSB is on it – as always!

  4. It was an error by the construction crew, digging out for the next 5-plex condo unit. City Light was here, then left, and are back again. Hopefully, we’ll have power again soon.

  5. Thank you, City Light; the power is back on! I’ve been in and out this evening, but I heard they came out right away and now – obviously – the magic has been worked. Calling their “report a power outage” line does the trick, I tell ya. :-)
