Power restored in two Seattle neighborhoods

Nearly 8,000 City Light customers were without power Wednesday as a storm whipped through the city.

The outage affected 4,000 customers on First Hill, where power was expected to be restored by 3 p.m.

Another 3,900 customers in the Roosevelt neighborhood lost power, but it was restored by Wednesday afternoon to all but one customer.  City Light said the Roosevelt outage was caused by problems with an underground cable, but didn’t know immediately what caused the First Hill outage.
