Power restored after major, hour-long outage in downtown Seattle

Downtown Seattle lost power for about an hour mid-Wednesday, killing traffic signals in about 60 percent of the neighborhood and trapping people in the elevators of various buildings in the downtown core.

The outage began just after 11:30 a.m. Seattle City Light initially estimated power would be out for a few hours, but then got it mostly restored by around 12:30 p.m.
