About 2,800 Homes, Businesses Affected by Outage

SEATTLE Seattle City Light crews restored power about 7 p.m. to about 2,800 homes and businesses in Shoreline that had been affected by an outage that started about 5:30 p.m.

Crews isolated the area where damage was suspected and routed power from another line to restore service as quickly as possible. The cause of the outage was not immediately known.

The general boundaries of the outage were N 205th Street on the north, N 149th Street on the south, 8th Avenue NW on the west and Corliss Avenue N on the east. Not all homes and businesses in that area were affected.

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.
