6:12 AM: Good morning – we’re watching weather as well as traffic this morning; a “wind advisory” was added overnight and is in effect until 4 pm, with gusts up to 50 mph. Charge everything! That’s in addition to the “coastal flood advisory” until 8 am. If the weather causes any serious problems, such as power outages, we’ll break out to a separate report, but for now we’ll track it along with the usual early-morning traffic watch. If you see trees/wires down, power out, or other storm effects, once you’ve reported to 911 (or City Light), let us know – 206-293-6302.
7:04 AM: We’ve been out checking on the wind/tide effects. Main one so far: Waves are crashing over the Constellation Park stretch of Beach Drive:
7:33 AM: Waterfront residents, at least on the west-facing side of West Seattle, are dealing with the tide’s aftermath, as Beach Drive Blog shows. We meantime also went over to the north-facing shore to check on the Alki Beach promenade was getting some spillover but nothing too dramatic:
