5:14 PM: Thanks for the tips. A power outage in The Junction is affecting some businesses – we’re told at least part of the east side of California between Alaska and Oregon. Also, Gary Potter from Potter Construction (WSB sponsor) says the traffic signal at 42nd/Alaska is out, “transformer blew.” Updates to come.
5:22 PM: Seattle City Light’s map (from which we’ve added a screengrab, above) says 20 customers are out.
5:31 PM: The map has been updated again – now it says 491 customers are without power. We’re updating the map above, too.
6:50 PM: SCL now attributes the outage to “bird/animal.” Though the estimate for restoration is tomorrow morning, please remember that the restoration estimates are just speculative and generally bear no relation to when the power actually is restored – could be a lot sooner, could be later.
9:26 PM: City Light map hasn’t updated yet but we’re getting multiple reports of power restoration. (Added: The map caught up; outage over.)
