The last power outage in Shoreline

Tuesday, September 10, 2019

As of Monday afternoon, City Light crews and teams had restored power to approximately 7,000 customers with about 180 customers remaining without power.

As of 1:45am on Tuesday, September 10, 2019, Seattle City Light had restored power to all but three locations - and one of those was in Shoreline.

One household in Innis Arden had the dubious distinction of being the last place in Shoreline without power.

Seattle City tweeted:
While last weekend’s storm was extraordinary, it quickly created widespread outages across our service territory. We have had 10-15 crews working at a time nonstop since Saturday night. 
The unusual lightning storm damaged a large number of transformers throughout our service territory, and getting to each one has resulted in a longer than normal restoration time for some folks. By early Monday morning, our teams had replaced 115 transformers.

At least three of those transformers were in Shoreline.

According to WeatherWatcher Carl Dinse in his article about the storm::

For the entire region the National Weather Service counted about 2,171 cloud to ground lightning strikes, averaging about 7-8 lightning strikes per minute. 224 of those strikes in King County and 449 of those strikes to our north in Snohomish County.
