A power outage not caused by the weather? A car striking a power pole in the Burien area caused an outage, that affects 2907 customers, started early Wednesday morning.

Just before 6 am a car struck a pole (exactly where this took place is not clear) and the power outage affected the area west of Sylvester Road down to near Maplewild Ave SW and then extended in patchy fashion north up to and including 152nd SW.

Restoration was expected to be made by 10am
