OUTAGES: Electricity in southwest West Seattle; Comcast phone in wider area

Two outages to mention: First, thanks to Bianca for reporting a blown transformer near 35th SW/SW 112th – that’s likely what’s to blame for a 51-home outage toward the south end of 35th SW and part of the Seola Beach area.

Meantime, Comcast phone service is out for a multi-county area, including at least part of King County. We’ve heard from one business – Greentree Animal Hospital – that says you can reach them by e-mail in the meantime, greentreeanimalhospital@gmail.com – if anyone else has alternate contact info, we’d be happy to mention it.

    One of the local TV stations reported that the phone outage included 911 service in several western Wash. counties, including King Co.  Affecting all land lines & comcast service but that mobile calls to 911 were working.

      It wasn’t the 911 service but VOIP customers trying to reach it. Lots of updates on that from law-enforcement agencies on Twitter. Sounds like Comcast has restored its service but I’m still looking for an official source on that before updating above.

Sorry, comment time is over.
