|Seattle City Light outage map at 5pm|
10pm - no change to the map
There have been a couple of fierce gusts of wind, but predictions are that the worst should be past by now, at 5pm. The outage map is worse. That might mean that more trees fell, or perhaps it simply means that previous outages have now been reported and the map updated.
