Update 11:30 p.m.: Thunder, lightening and hail now, so loud it woke us up — an amazing storm to kick off the season.
Earlier: We don’t have to tell you, it’s very windy out there tonight. Up in Shoreline, a man was killed when he was hit by a falling tree. Here in Ballard, driving winds knocked down a power line on 32nd Ave. between 77th and 80th this evening, closing the street and temporarily blocking two Metro buses.
Power is out at one home along the street, and firefighters ask that neighbors there stay inside to avoid contact with the wires. See wind damage? Please post in comments below.
