Power Lines Downed by Trees in High Winds Responsible for Outage that Affected 4,000


SEATTLE Repair crews have restored power to all 4,000 customers affected by a power outage in Magnolia this morning.

The outage was reported at 7:20 a.m. Crews discovered power lines near 32nd Avenue and Lynn Street and 32nd Avenue and Howe Street that had been knocked down by trees in high winds. By routing power around the damaged area, the crews were able to restore service to all but 127 customers by 9:20 a.m. Full restoration was achieved at 12:30 p.m.

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.
