9:18 PM: Another emergency callout right now, this time in the 1200 block of Alki. The SFD engine on scene reported that it’s a slide behind a building. Police are there too (added: note in the photo, that includes backup from outside Seattle); they’re calling in Seattle Public Utilities. This follows a record-rainfall day – 1.14 inches of rain at Sea-Tac, wettest May 30th on record.
ADDED 4:09 PM MONDAY: We went to the scene late this morning and also followed up with SPU. Above and below are our photos from behind 1210 Alki SW, but SPU’s Sabrina Register tells us the problem was actually uphill:
Seattle Public Utilities responded after midnight to reports of a water leak on California Lane SW. Water was temporarily shut off to about a dozen customers while crews investigated the source of the leak. After it was determined that the leak was on private property, water was restored to 11 customers. Crews continue to investigate to verify there’s no damage to SPU infrastructure.
