A windstorm swept into the area early Monday morning, April 4, 2022, most likely causing a power outage for 349 customers in Burien’s Three Tree Point neighborhood.
Seattle City Light says that electricity went out at around 7:01 a.m.
City Light has not yet determined the cause of this one, but power outages in this area are not uncommon as there are a lot of trees lining Maplewild Ave SW, as well as a seemingly weak power grid.
UPDATE: Power was restored at around 1:15 p.m.
The National Weather Service issued a Wind Advisory, in effect until 8 p.m. Monday night, with southwest winds 25-35 mph, and gusts up to 50 mph expected:
