Update 3 pm Jan. 13
Some power has been restored, notably near Three Tree Point in the Normandy Park/Burien area. Sporadic pockets remain in Seahurst, Shorewood, and along Walnut Ave SW in North Admiral. Estimated restoration was around 8pm.
High winds were the primary reason behind a large number of power outages across the Seattle area with numbers topping 71,000 as crews made their way to the various sites to repair. As of 6 am that number was down to less than 58,000. PSE reported many more outages around Puget Sound topping half a million.
The Three Tree Point area extending into Normandy Park in the southern part of City Light service area extending north through the White Center area with more in North Admiral. Restoration times varied from early morning to mid morning but some extended out to 8pm.
According to the National Weather Service "Winds have peaked but will remain gusty (up to 30-40 mph) thru the AM. This may hamper restoration efforts as crews continue to work. There are nearly 560,000 outages across the area"
