Welcome to an updated version of Seattle City Light's outage map, which we are Beta testing. This new platform maintains our previous functionality and creates a platform for further enhancements. We invite you to try this new version and share your comments at

Seattle City Light's electricity distribution system has experienced significant damage and our crews are working to restore service as quickly as possible. You might notice a difference in the map showing current outages. Boundaries of the outages are not displayed. This change is necessary to keep the map operating in a timely manner with the high volume of data generated by the large number of outages. Information will be updated every 15 minutes. The information includes most of our service territory, but does not include some sections, such as the Network Distribution areas in Downtown, First Hill and the University District.
