UPDATE: Power outage in Westwood area

11:56 AM: Thanks to the texter who tipped us to this: Seattle City Light is investigating a power outage in the Westwood area. Its map shows 44 customers (homes/businesses) without electricity, north of Roxbury and east of 27th SW. No cause is listed yet, but the texter reported hearing an “explosion” – no Seattle Fire dispatches in the area, though.

3:08 PM: Just checked – still out, after more than three hours. SCL’s map attributes the outage to “equipment failure” and guesstimates that power will be restored by early evening.

6:41 PM: According to the SCL map, the power’s back on.

    Thanx so much for responding and blogging about it. We were all confused about what was going on. I love that this site exists. It really makes me feel more connected to my neighborhood🙏🏼💕 I had just purchased a couple sets of battery operated strings of lights (basically Christmas lights) for my porch, at dollar tree. FYI they work great for power outages! 😉🤔💅🏼 

Sorry, comment time is over.
