A Seattle City Light crew worked to restore power to 28 homes in the Highland Park neighborhood on Oct. 15 after a tree fell damaging some power lines.

Winds do little damage in West Seattle

The first wind event of the year came and went with only minor impacts in West Seattle overnight. At around 7:30 pm a tree in the Highland Park neighborhood fell and caused a transformer to fail. 28 people were without power for a few hours as City Light crews located the tree and took chainsaws to it to clear it, then put the equipment back on line ahead of schedule.

The wind did not really get going until the 3:00 am hour and based on the City Light System Status map did not cause any further outages.
