Power was knocked out for 11,500 Seattle City Light customers in the West Seattle, SeaTac and Burien areas at around 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 20, 2024.

The outage was widespread – in West Seattle; Burien from Three Tree Point up north through Gregory Heights and Lake Burien; then east into parts of SeaTac and Tukwila.

Seattle City Light is investigating the cause, but it coincides with a surprisingly strong windstorm that hit at around 2:45 p.m. (we felt and scrambled from the sudden 30+ mph winds firsthand while working in the yard).

City Light said the estimated restoration time will be Saturday night, April 20, 2024 at 10 p.m.

Since 2007, The B-Town Blog is Burien’s multiple award-winning hyperlocal news/events website dedicated to independent journalism.
