Progress is slow in restoring power

Progress is painfully slow in fully restoring power to our area. Downed tree and power lines make it challenging for City Light workers, not to mention the sheer number of outages.

Meanwhile, people are throwing away the food in their freezers and refrigerators and trying to find open stores and restaurants. Stores that were open had fairly bare shelves. Gas stations that were open - and many were closed - had long lines and some were taking cash only.

City Light thinks they'll be able to get most power restored by midnight, although one large area in LFP (838 customers) has a 3am estimate.

West Shoreline was not as affected by this storm although there are downed trees. Businesses west of Aurora were reported to be operating normally Sunday - Central Market, Spiro's, the 4-Corners business district, Richmond Beach.

Hurray for City Light! Those men and women deserve every dime they make - our power came back ~ 9:30 pm - I was walking the dog and the CL truck was on 5tn NE just south of the library - Kemp West was getting ready to trim tree branches that were laying on lines.
Given how many trees and branches were down around our area it could have been way worse.
