Most power outages in Ballard area restored

1 p.m. All but 8 customers in the Golden Gardens outage have been restored.

5:30 a.m. A small area around Golden Gardens remains without power at this hour — 118 customers — as well as a couple small outages scattered in Ballard. Here’s the outage map.

6 p.m. Power has been restored to the largest outage area in East Ballard and lower Phinney. Meanwhile over near Golden Gardens, crews estimate the power will be back by 11 p.m.

A neighbor reported that a tree fell across Golden Gardens Drive just north of 87th St., which may be the culprit. The road was closed by police at 5:30, reports My Ballard reader Kelly. We also saw a report of wires down in the 2800 block of NW 90th Pl, a few blocks from Golden Gardens.

5:30 p.m. Seattle City Light shows two significant outages in the Ballard area: 3,420 customers along lower Phinney Ridge and another 118 near Golden Gardens above 85th.

City Light estimates power will be restored at 7 p.m. in the larger outage, 11 p.m. for residents near Golden Gardens.

Earlier: We’re seeing our first reports of an outage in the West Woodland area, and Seattle City Light reports there are about 3,400 customers out in Ballard and lower Phinney Ridge. The outage stretches from Leary Way nearly all the way up to 85th.

City Light crews are responding, and they estimate power will be restored by 7 p.m.

The first windstorm of the season has sent branches and at least one tree to the ground.

The National Weather Service says it registered a 63 MPH gust in West Seattle, but weather stations in Ballard are showing maximum gusts in the 30 MPH range. There’s a high wind warning in effect until 9 p.m., and forecasters say we’ll see the strongest winds until 7 p.m. before easing.
