Most Expected Back In Service by 2 a.m.

SEATTLE — A large tree that fell into power lines near NE 150th Street in Seattle was responsible for two power outages in Shoreline and North Seattle just after midnight Monday morning. About 5,700 homes and businesses were affected.

Crews restored service to about half those customers by 1:20 a.m. and expected to have most of the rest back in service by 2 a.m. Crews estimated that it would take until about 7 a.m. to restore power for about 80 customers closest to the damaged area.

The general boundaries of the original outages were North 205th Street in Shoreline on the north, North 150th Street in Seattle on the south, Aurora Avenue on the east and 14th Avenue NW on the west.

Information about these outages is also available online from Seattle City Light’s system status map at http://www.seattle.gov/light/.

Seattle City Light is the 10th largest public electric utility in the United States. It has some of 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.
