Underground Cable Failure Caused Outage for 2,800 Homes, Businesses

SEATTLE Seattle City Light crews restored power about 6 p.m. today to all customers affected by a power outage in Shoreline.

The outage started about noon when an underground cable failed. The outage initially affected about 2,800 homes and businesses.

Crews isolated the damage to restore service for about 2,600 customers by 2 p.m. Full restoration was achieved after crews replaced the damaged cable.

The boundaries of the initial outage were NW 205th Street on the north; Meridian Avenue N on the east; Puget Sound on the west; and N 159th Street on the south. Not all customers within those boundaries 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.
