9:05 PM: Thanks for the tips! 334 customers are out of power in the Brace Point area as of about 15 minutes ago. No cause yet per the City Light map, but this is an area that’s been through multiple previous outages, and is getting underground upgrades in hopes of alleviating that.
11:16 PM: The number of customers affected is now down to 166.
9:54 AM: As noted in comments, the outage – now attributed to “equipment failure” (we’re following up with SCL) – continues, and the number of customers affected is back to 334.
THURSDAY NIGHT NOTE: Per a commenter, the power was back by 2 pm. Meantime, we’re still waiting for City Light to reply to our questions about the cause and the status of the upgrade project.
FRIDAY UPDATE: SCL spokesperson Julie Moore tells WSB, “The cause of the outage was a failed cable. As far as the rebuild project, we’re waiting for a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit from the Department of Ecology. We’re expecting it before the end of the month.”
