UPDATE: 108-home West Seattle power outage over in Arroyos after 24 hours

2:04 PM: Just checked after a tip, and the Seattle City Light outage map confirms 108 customers (homes) are without electricity in The Arroyos (and part of south Arbor Heights), as of about 20 minutes ago. We’re checking – more to come.

3:17 PM: SCL says the cause of the outage is “equipment failure.” Their current guesstimate for restoration is just before 6 pm – but please remember that it’s only a guess; might happen later, or sooner.

11:26 PM: After almost 10 hours, the outage continues, and the restoration guesstimate is now 4:40 am.

2:50 PM SATURDAY: After 24 hours, the outage ended a short time ago, per a tweet from Kate.

      Sorry to hear that. The map now just says “pending.” I don’t know where the equipment failure was but maybe it’s complicated.

    As of 9:00am, the break location has been identified but they have to wait for PSE to give gas line clearance before they can dig to replace the cable. They put in the call to PSE around 3:00am.
