Seattle faced power outage on Sunday
Magnolia, a residential neighborhood in Seattle, faced a power outage on Sunday. Authorities said that crews are responding to the situation and electricity should be back up by 5 PM local time. About 3900 customers in the area were affected.
The cause of the outage has not been revealed yet.
Magnolia is located on a peninsula that is adjacent to Queen Anne and is surrounded by the Puget Sound. The neighborhood is three miles from Downtown Seattle. Several social media users complained about the power outage on Sunday.
"The Ting Network detected an Electric Utility Grid Power Outage event. The event started at 10:04 AM local time and impacted at least 16 homes," one tweet read.
Meanwhile, Post-Tropical Cyclone Ophelia is threatening flooding a major metros like Washington DC and New York City, according to broadcasters. It made landfall in North Carolina early Saturday. It triggered states of emergency in North Carolina, Virginia, and Maryland.
On Sunday morning, 6,000 customers were without electricity in New Jersey, and nearly 2,000 lacked power in North Carolina.
The National Hurricane Center (NHC) warned that it could still flood portions of the Chesapeake Bay and its tidal rivers on Sunday.
“Heavy rainfall from Ophelia may produce localised flash and urban flooding impacts across portions of Mid-Atlantic states from Virginia to New Jersey through today. Swells generated by Ophelia will affect much of the US east coast through the remainder of the weekend, likely causing life-threatening surf and rip currents," the NHC wrote on Sunday.
