Who keeps flipping the switch? Power outages in Shoreline

Wednesday, June 20, 2012

Just before 4pm on Tuesday, June 19, the power went out for 2.700 households in Shoreline and North Seattle.

Boundaries of the outage were: on the north, NE 185th St.; on the east, 33rd Ave. NE; on the south, NE 120th St.; and on the west,Corliss Ave. N.

By 10pm, crews had restored power to all but 768 households and shortly after midnight, the number was down to 600.

Then, around 10pm another power outage hit a different part of Shoreline. This one affected 3,874 but that number was quickly reduced to about 1,046 customers.

The boundaries of the new outage were: on the north: NE 198th; on the east, Lake Washington; on the south; NE 148th; and on the west, 25th Ave. NE.

Power in both areas was restored by 4am Wednesday.  The cause of the first outage was determined to be wires down from equipment failures on utility poles. The second outage is still under investigation.
