Update 7pm Sunday
The number of City Light customers without power as of 7pm Sunday hovered around 3200 around the greater Seattle area with some persistent pockets notably just west of Hwy 99 near South Park with 1100 in the dark, in Normandy Park with 77 customers out and no relief until 8am on Monday, and on Delridge Way SW with 192 still out.
Update 10am Sunday
The largest power outage caused by the overnight windstorm persisted in the Burien and North Highline areas on Sunday morning with other pockets of outages continuing in West Seattle along Harbor Ave SW and East of Delridge Way SW. Another pocket of outages was along 28th SW near Roxbury Street, West of White Center. Various restoration times were posted on the Seattle City Light System Status page. Check it for more timely updates.
The first windstorm of 2019 packed a punch overnight, Jan 6 as it blew through the region carrying gusts up to 60mph as predicted. It put the lights out all over Seattle at one point leaving more than 50,000 City Light customers without electricity.
Burien was still out Sunday morning with areas along 146th SW near Seahurst Park affected as well as large area of North Highline east of 16th SW centered on 116th SW. The expected restoration time was some time after 12 Noon according to City Light.
Vintage at Burien is still down and out from loss of power like most everybody. Hope they can get it up and going soon.
