2 AM: So far, breezy but not catastrophically windy in West Seattle. Checking City Light’s map, we notice about 3,700 customers (homes/businesses) lost power about 15 minutes ago in parts of Burien and North Highline southeast of White Center, but nothing up here.
4:15 AM: That outage is over, according to the SCL map. Meantime, a traffic note: A crash is blocking the right lane of the eastbound bridge near the curve past the Fauntleroy entrance, according to SDOT. (Thanks to the texter who pointed it out.)
As for the weather, archived observations show some gusts in the 20s around here but nothing huge. The NWS’s newest forecast discussion says it’ll be a windy, rainy day overall, and that Saturday night still could bring “a major windstorm.”
5:31 AM The bridge crash has cleared.
