Power outages in Lake Forest Park and all of Richmond Beach

80 households in LFP lost power

The strong winds that came through Saturday evening pelted my roof with pine cones, and flickered the lights a little but left my power intact. A couple of areas west and east of me did not fare so well.

80 homes in Lake Forest Park lost power at 8:20pm. The cause is still under investigation so City Light is unable to give an estimate of when power will be restored.

Not much electricity in Richmond Beach right now

Almost all of Richmond Beach lost power at 5:45pm because a tree came down. It must have hit a main feeder line to take out such a large area. A small area around Syre Elementary is unaffected. City Light reports 1913 customers without power.

Lake Forest Park has some households back on and others still dark, which means there were multiple problems in the area. But they are clearly working in the area.

City Light is dealing with outages all over its service area, from Richmond Beach to Burien - an estimated 55 separate outages affecting 22,424 customers.

One of the largest areas is in north Seattle along Lake Washington, from Matthews Beach to just within reach (but not touching) of Shoreline at 145th. They blame a tree, which took out power to 8542 customers.

The numbers keep changing as they update the online system, but totals are going down, which is a good thing.

There were still some homes by Einstein with Power. But, everyone next to Syre was out until about 3:00am.
Seattle City Light was out there for a LONG time!
Very thankful everyone was safe as a power line was down in the Syre parking lot DURING The Richmond Beach Halloween Carnival!
