White Center Weather Watch: Tree down on Ambaum, just south of WC

4:25 PM: Thanks to the tipsters who let us know about a tree down on Ambaum around SW 116th. We’re en route to check it out. Not sure yet how much it’s affecting traffic. Updates to come.

4:57 PM UPDATE: The tree is down in the southbound lanes just south of SW 116th. When we were there a short time ago, people were being diverted around that area. In our photo above, that’s the tree to the left of the view – you can’t see the trunk, just the big leafy top.

    It seems Ambaum’s been closed northbound somewhere around SW 120th. Also, is there a news or other helicopter in the area? Just heard about this via a phone call from someone driving there.

  2. the tree is no more , the tree service gave a short floor-show to the patrons of geno’s cleaned the mess up and raced off to cleanup another errant tree.

    Regarding Floating Island technology for Hicklin Lake/Lakewood Park:
    Friends of Hicklin Lake feel very pleased that action is being taken to start the clean up of this polluted Hicklin Lake. We wish to update residents who attended our meetings, as we presented a sample of material made of recycled plastic bottles for the Floating Islands, based on a patented matrix produced by Floating Islands International, a company based in Montana.
    The low bidder, however, uses a different system and its parent company, BioMatrix Water, is based in Morayshire Scotland. The Herrera Environmental Co. is a seller of this product and it is based here in Seattle. We met with their representative once, last summer, and thought that the FII system was more desirable, having a very porous matrix to maximize surface area for microbe attachment.But we wish to thank all involved for a system to help clean up this very long time polluted Hicklin Lake.
