October 25, 2013 at 9:48 am | In Utilities, West Seattle news | 5 Comments

9:48 AM: It’s not on the Seattle City Light map yet, but we’re getting multiple reports of a power outage involving more than 100 residences south of Alki Point. We’re calling SCL to see if we can find out more.

9:58 AM UPDATE: SCL’s Scott Thomsen tells WSB that the outage involves “265 customers. A bird got between two wires and created a short. Estimate for restoration is 10:20 am.”

10:05 AM UPDATE: Or maybe sooner. Tipster Keith says his power just came back.
