3:45 PM: 18 hours after that incredible thunderstorm moved through (WSB as-it-happened coverage here), some damage has yet to be repaired. The Seattle City Light map shows the biggest outage in Fauntleroy is finally over, but other pockets east of The Junction and in the Beach Drive area. Some have also noted cable/internet outages too; Dustin emailed to say he’s been out of Comcast service most of the day and their outage map shows stretches of the Fauntleroy and Roxhill areas are out. And at least one traffic signal was still affected – 35th and Henderson – when we went through around 1:30 pm:
Please remember that a malfunctioning traffic signal means the intersection is an all-way stop. Meantime, be aware that the forecast says there’s a chance of thunderstorms again tonight and/or tomorrow. For now, though, some sunshine, and a rainbow just photographed by Melissa Kegler:
And if you’re interested in a little more scientific detail about what happened last night, weather analyst Cliff Mass updated his storm post.
9:28 PM: Thanks for the updates in comments. Surveying the pockets still on the City Light map, looks like 150 or so customers are still out in West Seattle, after 24 hours; the biggest pocket is near 35th/Alaska. SCL tweeted earlier, “Due to the large number of scattered outages throughout our service territory and the amount of equipment that needs to be replaced, restoration time may take longer than usual.” Though fewer than 1,000 customers remain out in their service area, that’s distributed among 134 separate outages.
