Seattle Emergency: One Million Without Power December 15, 2006

Posted by publicpolitics in Seattle Politics.

King County Executive Ron Sims issued an emergency proclamation this morning after supercharged winds of up to 70 miles an hour overnight knocked out power to about one million people in greater Seattle.

A typical Seattle storm, if there is such an animal, downs two or three power feeder lines. As the public schools closed today all over the city, Seattle City Light said that as many as 65 lines were cut last night, and this morning 58 were still not working. To make matters worse, Sprint Nextel said that their networks in Seattle and Portland were disrupted. The downtown area remains unaffected.
