Almost 7,000 Seattle City Light customers were without power around Wednesday evening. But crews brought that number to about 300 about by 8 p.m.
Nearly 7,000 Seattle City Light customers in parts of Seattle’s Queen Anne, Interbay and Magnolia neighborhoods were without power beginning around 5:45 p.m. Wednesday, according to the public utility.
Crews fixed the problem for most of them about two hours later.
A tree damaged power lines and caused the outages, Seattle City Light said on Twitter. As of 8 p.m., about 300 customers were still affected, and the public utility estimated they would be without power until 1 a.m.
No other details were immediately available.
