Power Outages in Queen Anne and Magnolia

LightningThis past Saturday, a large power outage hit both the Queen Anne and Magnolia neighborhoods of Seattle leaving over 10,000 Seattle City Light customers in these areas without power.  The overnight storm that left many in the dark had crews working on the problem and by 1:00 pm only a little under 2,000 were still without power.  The windstorm that plagued the city caused resulted in downed power lines and a number of trees to fall which was undoubtedly the cause of most of the outages.  If this windy weather persists, it is more than likely that other Seattle neighborhoods could be facing power outages of their own.
