Update: West Seattle power outage affecting 265 customers

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.

    I just imagined this happening in Looney Toons style. Miss those cartoons.

    I am laughing because we heard it and my four year old said it was thunder!

    The bird? Medium well.

Sorry, comment time is over.
