WEST SEATTLE POWER OUTAGE: 140+ customers in Delridge

11:42 AM: Seattle City Light is investigating a power outage that started about 15 minutes ago in Delridge – the map shows two spots, one on SW Holden just west of Delridge, with most of the 140+ affected customers in what appears to be the West Ridge Park complex at Delridge/Kenyon. No word yet how it started; the current restoration estimate is mid-afternoon.

12:07 PM: Ken points out in a comment that a crash appears to be to blame – the SFD 911 log does show a “wires down” call a short time earlier in the 2200 block of SW Holden – and also says the Westhaven Apartments are affected.

2:42 PM: Just checked; outage continues, and restoration is now projected for after 7 pm.

10:27 PM: Debbie reports in comments that power was restored about half an hour ago. The SCL map still shows a few customers out.

    The Westhaven Apartments (behind West Ridge) are also affected. That’s another 140+ customer.

    Looks like someone hit a power pole on 24th street

      Thank you! Now I see the “2201 SW Holden wires down” call from earlier.

    Just got an email from our apartment complex (Westhaven) saying the head of Seattle City Light states it would be out for another 7 hours (to about 10pm).

    Power is back!  9:51 pm.

    I’m 2 buildings east of 24th & holden.  Comcast tv & internet went out yesterday 11:40 AM.  Power did not go out.  I called Comcast several times during the day and the recorded message kept saying service would be back in approx 3 hours from the time of my call.  I need internet access so at 2:30 AM I persevered and finally contacted an agent who said that 93,000 customers were affected in south Seattle and service would be restored at 9:30 AM. 

    At about 3:30 AM Comcast came on.  I’d like to hear from the other 92,999 customers about their experience.  Did anyone else in this area have a Comcast outage?

      I heard from one other person who had a Comcast outage but not power. If they really had a 93,000-customer outage I think we would have heard from far more people – that for example would be more than the entirety of their West Seattle customer base (we have about 100,000 people here but certainly fewer households).

    Thanks,  my thought exactly.
