Power Restored in Lake Forest Park

Seattle City Light repair crews restored service to all customers affected by a power outage in Lake Forest Park by 6 p.m. today.

Seattle City Light repair crews restored service to all customers affected by a power outage in Lake Forest Park by 6 p.m. today.

The outage was caused by a large tree that fell about 11 p.m. Wednesday night near Bothell Way and SR 104, damaging two utility poles, a transformer, power lines and a connection to underground power cables. About 7,500 homes and businesses were out of power at the peak of the outage.

Bothell Way (SR 522) was closed by the fallen tree and downed power lines. As City Light crews began their work to restore power, the road remained closed so cable TV and phone companies could re-hang their lines to the new utility poles. They expected to finish their work and reopen the road about 7 p.m.
