Greenwood power outage

by | Jan 18, 2009

The power went out shortly before 6:30 p.m. through the center of downtown Greenwood.

According to a Seattle City Light employee, a connector on a pole that goes to an underground source failed, taking out power from 80th Street to 90th Street between 1st Avenue NW and Dayton Avenue North.

The problem began in a small area at about 2:30 p.m., likely affecting the traffic light on 85th at Dayton, as mentioned in an earlier post. At about 6:20 p.m., the problem spread, causing the larger outage affecting about 340 customers. Power was restored a short time later, according to the City Light employee we spoke with. 

Thanks, John and Coral for flagging it for us.
