A power outage knocked out electricity to over 4,500 City Light customers in north Burien Wednesday afternoon, Dec. 20.

Electricity went out at 12:53 p.m.

The cause is from a “failed connector at a switch. When it failed, a power surge caused power lines upstream to break loose and fall to the ground,” according to Seattle City Light.

Boundaries of the outage are near SW 136th Street on the south end, Salmon Creek ravine on the west, 12th Ave S. on the east, and all the way up near South Park on the north.

Restoration is now projected to be around 5 p.m.
