Overnight lightning knocks out power to thousands
SEATTLE – Ka-BOOM! Did you hear it?! Mother Nature delivered a knockout punch, with some intense thunder and lightning to the Puget Sound region overnight, knocking out power to thousands of Seattle City Light customers. A Seattle City Light spokesman said that lightning hit three transformers around 1 a.m. Saturday causing 3800 customers to lose power. The transformers were on the west side of Queen Anne hill, and in Burien.
As of 8 a.m. Saturday, City Light crews have restored power to all but 18 customers
