Power has been restored this afternoon to about 3,600 homes in Wedgwood and Ravenna after a mishap between a tree limb and an electric line.

From Seattle City Light:

The outage started about 1 p.m. when a private tree company cut down part of a Douglas fir near NE 40th Avenue and NE 92nd Street. The falling wood hit power lines, causing a short, before coming off the lines and falling to the ground.

The general boundaries of the outage were NE 106th Street on the north, NE 75th Street on the south, 8th Avenue NE on the west and Lake Washington on the east.
