Gatewood power outage – but not a surprise this time

December 11, 2013 at 9:12 pm | In Gatewood, Utilities, West Seattle news | 2 Comments

If you have noticed while driving California SW south of Morgan Junction that a section of Gatewood is in the dark – it’s planned, according to a note we received from Lee, who says a notice was distributed saying the power would be out starting around 8 pm, for up to 11 hours. It’s not on the city’s outage map, so we don’t know how wide the area is, but this is part of the zone still served by some of Seattle City Light’s oldest equipment, which is scheduled for replacement.

10:19 PM: Power is back on!

  1. wow… 11 hours, it’s sub freezing out right now. Sorry to all the people who are without heat for 11 hours right now. Is the burn ban still in effect?
