UPDATE: 2-hour power outage in south Alki

2:23 PM: Thanks for the tips. 280 Seattle City Light customers in the south Alki area are without power right now. The SCL outage map shows it went out just before 2 pm. One person who contacted us reported hearing a “boom” just before losing power. No word yet on the cause. – the SFD 911 log shows no incidents in the area.

3:11 PM: The outage map now attributes this to “bird/animal contact.”

4:08 PM: Power’s back.

    Can confirm the boom… heard it from next to La Rustica, although our power’s still on.

    Short outage for city light of late. Christmas day saw outages of 6-18 hours.

      We didn’t have an outage in West Seattle on Christmas. The next two days had one each, though – each about five hours long – 156 Gatewood customers on 12/26 and then about 5,000 customers during the storm on 12/27. – TR
