Update: Most power back on in Capitol Hill

Most power is back on in Capitol Hill after 3,900 Seattle City Light customers spent much of Sunday afternoon without it. City Light spokeswoman Suzanne Hartman said it was unlikely that the outages were directly caused by the snow, but that fallen tree limbs or other snow-related incidences could have caused them.

Some told the company a tree fell into power lines near 22nd Avenue East and East Galer Street. About 120 City Light customers are still without power in the Seattle area Sunday night.

Roger Thompson, a spokesman for Puget Sound Energy, said the utility had experienced two power outages related to snowy branches: one in Thurston County affecting 2,400 people, and another in Medina that left 700 without power. Both were cleared up Sunday afternoon after a couple of hours, he said.
