    Brookdale West Seattle is safe. The fire is not there. The power is off but the generator kicked on and the residents are being well cared for.

    power is out at Nova Apartments. No ETA from fire department they said “it’s going to be a while”.

    Still no power. Looks like they’re still trying to fix it.
