Power outage in the University District impacting the UW

Seattle City Light crews are trying to restore power to 245 customers in the University District. Most of the outages are impacting the University of Washington, according to City Light.

Power went out in the area around 5:30 a.m.. It appears to be some sort of problem with an underground cable, said Scott Thomsen, spokesman for City Light. Initially, the outage impacted nearly 2,000 customers in Laurelhurst, Ravenna and the University District.

Crews are on scene. It’s unclear how long the outages will last.
