UPDATE 1:10 p.m.: Power has been restored to all but 100 customers, with restorationg estimated for those by 3 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 12.

The original outage knocked our electricity for 4,081 Seattle City Light customers.

City Light said the outage started at 11:32 a.m.

Cause of the outage is unknown as of 11:59 a.m.

UPDATE 12:25 p.m.: While it’s unconfirmed as the cause by City Light, the outage may have originated with this “arcing, smoking or downed power lines” incident where a tree fell on some lines on 21st Ave SW & SW 146th Street in Seahurst, reported at 11:35 a.m.:

According to the agency’s outage map, electricity was out from the Seahurst area on the south, up nearly to South Park on the northeast side.

  1. Charity begins at home. We should consider repairing our electrical grid here in Washington before sending billions to other countries. Please feel free to forward my request to our local and state officials.

  2. Amen Karen, amen. The visceral hatred for America First is some crazy, crazy stuff.
    Not just the electrical grid but all the other massive issues we face on a daily basis.
    America and Americans need help. Stop the war mongering and help Americans.

  3. Yah Karen! I’m with you! There are a lot of things we can work on here on our own land, in our own environment, before shoveling millions to other countries!
