Power being restored 

SEATTLESeattle City Light crews have been able to restore power to about 6,000 customers  but 1,500 are still without power.  A thunderstorm that moved through the area around 12:30 a.m. caused several outages scattered throughout the service area.  Areas still without power include Northgate, Maple Leaf, Pinehurst, Broadview and Licton Springs.  Not all customers in these neighborhoods lost power.  Crews have been called in from home and are making repairs. 

Seattle City Light is the tenth 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.
