Power restored to most City Light customers

Power has now been restored to a wide swath of south Seattle, which was affected by a massive power outage earlier this afternoon that turned off the lights for as many as 28,000 customers.

Seattle Public Schools canceled after-school activities at 14 schools:  Mercer, John Muir, Beacon Hill, Cleveland, Maple, Aki Kurose, Kimball, Martin Luther King, Dearborn Park, Franklin, Graham Hill, Hawthorne, Whitworth and Columbia annex.

Because the outage also affected the John Stanford Center,  the district extended open enrollment through 12:30 p.m. March 12.

Here’s a link to the city’s outage map, which is being continually updated.
