West Seattle Weather Watch: Wind advisory, power outages

You’ve probably noticed the wind’s gotten even gustier – we’ve heard of gusts in the 40s, and now the National Weather Service has put out a “wind advisory” in effect till 1 am. Also have word so far of outages in Shorewood and Arbor Heights, though they’re not on the City Light tracker yet – it says 76 are out citywide but an SCL news release says 17,000. 10:51 PM UPDATE: Tracker’s working now and shows the 4,200+-out patch in Shorewood & beyond.

      I just sent a note back to our SCL contact, who sent a news release saying 17,000 customers citywide are out … while the tracker says 76. Clearly something awry. – TR

      The Shorewood etc. outage is the biggest one in this area by far – 4,200+ customers. Am just putting an update on White Center Now, since more of those affected are in that area …

    This is a cool map –
    It was on the Komo 4 site.

      That’s exactly what’s linked in our story … see the link for “City Light tracker” … and was linked in our earlier story too.

    A big chunk of my fence blew down @ 38th and Raymond. It was pretty marginal to begin with. Then I discovered someone broke into my garage overnight. They forced the door, maybe taking advantage of the noise. Waiting for the police now. Good Times!

Sorry, comment time is over.
