UPDATE: Tree blamed for West Seattle power outage

10:26 AM: After a blustery night, 134 West Seattle homes are dealing with a power outage. The power went out just after 5:30 am in the area shown in the Seattle City Light outage-map screengrab above, parts of Brace Point and Arbor Heights. SCL blames the outage on a tree.

3:28 PM: Just checked the map for the first time in a few hours; the outage is down to 21 customers.

7:47 PM: Since that last look, everyone’s been reconnected, per the map.

      Not aside from whatever’s on the map, which is always just a guess, could be earlier, could be later. If anyone has seen the crew and/or knows where the culprit tree is, we haven’t heard.

    City Light has been working in the area for about the past hour. Neighbors shared they heard a boom about 5:30 or 6:00 this morning. Hope the power comes back soon!

Sorry, comment time is over.
