ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

The snow storm that came to the Puget Sound region hit West Seattle pretty hard as multiple power outages in the area put people in the dark and cold early on Monday Feb. 6.

Approximately four to five inches of snow that began falling in earnest after midnight kept both SDOT and City Light crews extremely busy trying to deal with the mess.

The power outages, one affecting 4221 and the other 976 customers were concentrated between 35th SW and over east to 4th Ave. SW and from SW Henderson Street in the south to just shy of SW Brandon Street. It appeared from the City Light System Status Map that Louisa Boren School was without power. Not that it mattered too much (aside from items requiring refrigeration) Seattle Public Schools (and Highline Public Schools were closed for the day.

City Light estimated a restoration time of around 11 am.

King County Metro, specifically the C Line was struggling to get people downtown, but had to drop many off on Avalon Way to wait for a shuttle since the buses were operating at capacity.
