Seattle City Light crews restored power about 8:45 a.m. for about 2,800 homes and businesses affected by an outage in West Seattle.

The outage started about 5:40 a.m. when a branch from a tree came into contact with power lines near 42nd Avenue SW and SW Hill Street.

The general boundaries of the outage were Alki Avenue SW on the north, SW Juneau Street on the south, 25th Avenue SW on the east, and 44th Avenue SW on the west. Not all customers in that area were affected.

Seattle City Light is the ninth largest public electric utility in the United States.  It has the lowest cost customer rates of any urban utility, providing reliable, renewable and environmentally responsible power to nearly 1 million Seattle area residents.  City Light has been greenhouse gas neutral since 2005, the first electric utility in the nation to achieve that distinction.
