Update:High winds knock out power for more than 4700

Update 12:10 am oct 26

Power was out for more than 4700 city light customers after high winds hit the Arbor Heights neighborhood and other parts of West Seattle Oct. 25-26. Power was out for more than 47000 across the city.

In West Seattle the outage extended from 122nd to the south and north including Fauntleroy Way SW up Beach Drive to Juneau Street SW. The western reach of the outage extended nearly to 39th SW. A block on Kenyon Street SW was also out between 39th and 41st streets SW.

City Light crews were out working to restore power which they estimated would likely be after 3am.
