SEATTLE A failed underground cable is the apparent cause of a power outage affecting about 3,300 customers in Ravenna, Wedgwood, Hawthorne Hills and Laurelhurst.

The outage was reported about 5:45 p.m. A repair crew was immediately dispatched, but an estimate for restoration of service was not immediately known.

The general boundaries of the outage were NE 35th Street on the South, NE 60th Street on the North, 9th Avenue NE on the West and 53rd Avenue NE on the East. Not all homes and businesses within those general boundaries were affected.

Seattle City Light is the ninth largest public electric utility in the United States. It has the lowest cost customer rates of any urban utility, providing reliable, renewable and environmentally responsible power to nearly 1 million Seattle area residents. City Light has been greenhouse gas neutral since 2005, the first electric utility in the nation to achieve that distinction.
