Seattle City Light workers leaf neighborhoods

Seattle - Seattle City Light workers are leafleting neighborhoods where power is out and likely will remain out for the next 24 hours. With predictions of very cold weather tonight and the possibility of snow, the City is taking the extraordinary steps of letting utility customers know what to do if their power remains out.

City Light employees will deliver flyers up to 7:00 P.M. and they will be wearing safety vests, hard hats, and to have their City Light ID visible. Flyers will be delivered to homes that clearly do not have power.

The following locations are being targeted:

North East South West
SW Barton St 35 th Ave SW SW 107th St Puget Sound
S Trenton 4th Ave S S Barton St 2nd Ave S
