SEATTLE (AP) - Thousands of Seattle City Light customers lost power for several hours Saturday evening because of downed power lines.

The utility says the power went out just after 5 p.m. to 10,000 to 11,000 customers. The outage was in the Capitol Hill area, extending eastward to Lake Washington.

Power was restored to all but a few hundred customers by about 8 p.m.

It's not immediately known what caused the power lines to go down.
