First Hill, Beacon Hill, the Chinatown-International District and Industrial Area Affected

SEATTLE Seattle City Light crews were working to restore service to about 4,700 homes and businesses in First Hill, Beacon Hill, the Chinatown-International District and the South Seattle industrial area that lost power Monday afternoon.

Crews were investigating reports of smoke coming from an underground electrical vault near 13th Avenue S and S Bayview Street. An initial estimate for restoration of service was set for 11 p.m.

The general boundaries of the outage were E. Columbia Street on the north, S. Andover Street on the south, 21st Avenue S. on the east, and 8th Avenue S. on the west. Not all customers within those boundaries were affected by the outage.

Updates on power outages are available online at www.seattle.gov/light/sysstat.

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.
