UPDATE: Second powerful wind storm brought high winds but few problems 10/15/2016 UPDATE 10:45pm The windstorm that many predicted might be "historic" was something of a letdown but did bring heavy rains and winds that blew leaves off trees but no power outages to West Seattle. A wind advisory from the National Weather Service remained in effect until 2am Sunday. A wind surfer off Beach Drive drew a brief emergency response but he was an experienced surfer, he said and after a short and challenging time out on the water higher winds than he liked caused him to choose not to continue. Orignal Post The second of two wind storms to sweep our way comes in today Oct. 15 and the National Weather Service predicts the peak winds could reach 65mph gusts and occur between 4pm and 9pm. The high tide happens earlier in the day so the storm surge will be less of a factor but could still flood some low lying areas. Rain will continue throughout the day. The wind is expected to diminish later in the evening. The Seahawk game on Sunday will see some rain and breezy conditions but nothing out of the ordinary. On Friday, power for more than 4600 West Seattle City Light customers, concentrated in North Admiral, took some time for crews to restore but all power was back by late evening.
