    Massive Power Outage Leaves Most of Downtown Seattle in the Dark
    Shelli Martineau
    A power outage left most of downtown Seattle without power on May 25, 2016.

    More than half of downtown Seattle was left in the dark Wednesday because of an equipment failure, NBC News reported.

    The power outage forced employees in the city’s commercial district to stop working and powerless traffic signals caused delays.

    About 60 percent of downtown Seattle was affected, according to the city’s public transportation system.

    Crews were still investigating what caused the outage.
