City crews continue to repair storm damage, restore power
Here’s what the city has to say about repairs from the overnight winds and rain:
Seattle City Light crews continue this morning to repair damage from overnight lightning strikes.
About 190 customers were without power in the Leschi neighborhood, where lightning was suspected as the cause of damage to overhead lines in one spot and an adjacent underground cable.
An overhead repair crew was working to replace a broken utility pole, replace downed wires and replace a damaged transformer affecting about 80 of the customers. Service was expected to be restored by 3 p.m. An underground crew was trying to determine the extent of the damage and did not immediately have an estimate for restoration of service for the 110 customers served by the cable.
