Power outage affects more than 3000 in West Seattle; Now restored

Update 10:40pm

Power is restored as of 10:33pm

Original post

A power outage hit central and southern West Seattle around 9pm affecting more than 3000 City Light customers. No cause was confirmed  by City Light who were investigating the outage though there were reports of a car striking a pole near 26th and Juneau with wires down. That area is just adjacent to a City Light power sub station. The outage extended from Myrtle Street SW in High Point down along 32nd SW to 107th SW in White Center, with the largest section of the outage affecting Fauntlee Hills. City Light estimated a 4am time of restoration.
