Seattle City Light repair crews responded to reports of two power outages in Shoreline and North Seattle just after midnight Monday morning. About 5,700 homes and businesses were affected.
The cause of the outages was not immediately known. An initial estimate for the restoration of service was about 6:30 a.m.
The general boundaries of the outages were North 205th Street in Shoreline on the north, North 150th Street in Seattle on the south, Aurora Avenue on the east and 14th Avenue NW on the west. Not everyone within those boundaries was affected.
Information about the outages is also available on City Light’s system status map at http://www.seattle.gov/light/sysstat .
Seattle City Light is the 10th largest public electric utility in the United States. It has some of 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.
