TRAFFIC/TRANSIT & STORM AFTERMATH: Post-wind Tuesday updates

(SDOT MAP with travel times/video links; is the ‘low bridge’ closed? LOOK HERE)

6:03 AM: Good morning. The Seattle City Light map shows most West Seattleites affected by outages have their power back – but not all; a pocket of 400+ customers is shown as still out in the Delridge area just north of Orchard/Sylvan, and there are still smaller pockets elsewhere. Please let us know, when you can do so safely, if you see a stoplight that’s not working or a tree/pole/etc. still blocking a road or path. First report in is from Al, who says a streetlight’s downed on the Harbor Avenue trail across from 7-11.

And of course any major hazard should be reported to authorities first if you’re not sure they know – 911 before business hours, then 206-684-ROAD for SDOT.

6:42 AM: Scanner confirms what the outage map suggests – the signal at Roxbury/Olson/4th is still out, so plan on extra time getting through that area (and stop all ways when signals aren’t working).

7:15 AM: Per e-mail, on 36th SW between Andover and Dakota, the downed streetlight shown in last night’s coverage is still down across the sidewalk. … On 41st SW between Manning and Hinds, a tree is still down across the street, Terri tells us this morning.

8:18 AM: Still incident-free. As for the outages, City Light warns that as it takes on the smaller outages – which is what’s left in West Seattle, between 1 and 411 customers – its pace of repairs will slow (160+ outages remain citywide, affecting 6,300+ customers).

      You must be in the 25-customer pocket east of California, north of Graham?

        If Chilly’s not, I am. The little red blip in the Raymond/Graham block between Cali and Faunt.

    How do you report a non-power wire that’s hanging down low over a sidewalk?  I think it’s centurylink, but it’s definitely in the lower position on the poles/telecom space.

      Call SDOT for starters since it’s affecting right of way – 206-684-ROAD.

    Yay! Power back on in Morgan Junction. Going to get lunch to warm up while I wait for the house to warm up…

      Thanks for the update! Just noticed that the 411-customer outage on Delridge is over too.

    We are still without power, I reported that our tree in our front yard fell over and took our power line with it. We live on 41st between Manning and Hinds and the power lines are draped across the street and tangled in our tree. Its been almost 24hours for us.  Our street is blocked by cars at the scene of the wires, so no one can drive through our block.

      We went over looking for it this afternoon – must have looked in the wrong place – has City Light or anyone else shown up yet?

Sorry, comment time is over.
