Power outage that began this morning at 10 has been resolved for most customers in Burien, South Park and areas of south Seattle. A small area of Rainier Valley and New Holly remains out, affecting around 240 customers. Could be 5-6 hours to restore as crews have to bring in new equipment.

Cause of Burien outage was equipment failure triggered by a seagull in wires.
