West Seattle power outage: Almost 300 Admiral homes affected

Thanks to everyone who e-mailed with news that the power’s out for a stretch of the Admiral area. The City Light outage map says almost 300 homes are without power but should be back by late evening (the “estimated restoration time” is usually a very general estimate – could be earlier). The boundaries are shown as north of Admiral Way, between 47th SW and 53rd SW. No indication at this point of what caused the outage (no fires/lines-down incidents on the 911 log, etc.) – let us know if you’re seeing Seattle City Light crews (we’re out looking too).

6:22 PM UPDATE: Just saw a truck near 47th/Admiral – our crew is going to see if they can get close enough to find out anything about the outage.

6:34 PM UPDATE: Thanks to Karl de Jong, nearby resident and vice president of the Admiral Neighborhood Association, for sharing a photo of that crew. WSB co-publisher Patrick Sand talked to them very briefly before they moved on – they said they had fixed a “burned connector.” The SCL map still shows the power out, but one commenter says it came back on at 6:23, and we are seeing streetlights/porch lights on in the area.

    We have a Comcast internet outage at Admiral/Lander/53rd, anyone else?

    Power came back on at 6:23. Now my washer can finish my load of laundry.

    Internet back on after a helpful phone call with Comcast technician, seems it was our wireless router!

      Glad to hear that, were you in the power outage zone too? Sometimes that can play havoc with routers and require a reset or something. – TR

    We are smack dab in the center of that area and never lost power.

Sorry, comment time is over.
