SEATTLE Seattle City Light repair crews restored power about 3:30 p.m. to 3,700 homes and businesses in Burien and unincorporated King County that were affected by an outage caused by a spring wind storm.

The outage was reported about 2:20 p.m. The general boundaries were S 96th Street on the north, SW 175th Street on the south, 24th Avenue S on the west, and 33rd Avenue SW on the east. Not all customers within those boundaries were affected.

Winds also were causing small scattered outages in several areas of City Lights service territory.

Earlier in the day crews restored service to about 2,900 homes and businesses in Lake Forest Park that were affected by an outage caused by high winds that pushed a tree into power lines.

Seattle City Light had 14 crews ready to respond to outages related to overhead power lines throughout the day.

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.
