Power Outage on Beach Drive and the Helicopters

If you haven’t been watching the afternoon news or reading West Seattle Blog, you might be wondering what’s up with the helicopters overhead all morning… and I guess if you’re on that portion of Beach Drive without power, you just might be in the dark (so to speak).

Apparently there is an ongoing standoff taking place at 42nd and Findlay. It appears that the SWAT team was called out for an eviction possibly involving family members. The home was registered having a large amount of firearms which is likely why SWAT was called. The home was set fire and areas of West Seattle have lost power.

I don’t know if the area on Beach Drive is a cause of the fire or if it’s just a coincidence.

Many nearby streets are blocked off.

West Seattle Blog has ongoing coverage of this event.
