Seattle City Light crews restored power to the Center House at Seattle Center about 1:30 p.m. today.
The initial outage started about 9:30 a.m. and included the entire Seattle Center campus and some surrounding homes and businesses. Most of those customers were back in service within 30 minutes.
The cause of the outage was a failed cable splice. Crews routed power around the bad section to restore power and will work on replacing the bad section of cable over the next several days.
