Electricity was knocked out to over 400 customers in Burien during a blustery storm on Tuesday, Oct. 13, 2020.
The majority of the outage was felt by customers in the Maplewild/Three Tree Point area, where at least 341 homes lost power.
Seattle City Light said that the estimated restoration time is 4:06 p.m., but as of 4:25 p.m. it appears most power is still out.
The likely cause for at least one of the outages was a fallen tree that hit a transformer in the 15600 block of Maplewild Ave SW:
