Transit damaged goods such as freight, mail, and vehicles, including power lines, roads, and bridges, were damaged over 1,800 homes in Seattle, according to an assessment from the U.S. Federal Transit Administration.
The damage included fire damage to some homes, water damage to the streets and sidewalks, and electrical outages that shut down the city’s electric grid, the FTA said in a statement.
“The impacts to Seattle’s public transportation system were extensive,” FTA President Mark Shurtleff said in the statement.
The FTA said the total damage totaled about $2.4 billion.
The agency estimated the damage was the worst in a U.A.E. city for the past three decades.
The transit agency was also working with the city to repair damaged transit vehicles and bridges.
