Deja vu all over again

Radio report says this new power outage — about 5,000 “customers” from South Park on into southeastern West Seattle — is the work of trees and lines down on Highland Park Way, which is apparently closed right now so crews can take care of it. There’s no hint of it on Delridge till just past the turnoff to Trenton as you head toward Westwood Village; then, heading west on Trenton, you can see where the power’s gone. Including apartments east of the shopping center, some homes to the south, and odd chunks of WV itself — the QFC and everything directly north of it (the whole strip of stores including the Sub Shop, Toshi’s, Starbucks, etc.), all out, along with Marshall’s, and the businesses inbetween those two buildings — Big 5, 24 Hour — but on the west side of WV, all looks well. Oh yeah, McDonald’s is out too. We’ll check back to see how long this lasts. The Seattle City Light page has a short update as well.

    Does Daystar still have power?

    When we drove thru about 20 minutes ago, that side of the street all looked fine — even the street light at the central WV entrance off Barton was on, just feet from the dark McDonald’s. Heard on a TV report 10 mins ago that crews have been trying to “route power around the downed tree/line” situation, so maybe that’s why things look so spotty. Won’t get to check again in person for at least half an hour so hopefully another “eyewitness” will weigh in sooner.

    Anything new on what the forcast for the power looks like?

    Daystar has power, but no tv.

Sorry, comment time is over.
