Seattle Times unable to Print Newspaper

The Seattle Times and Post-Intelligencer lost all power last night and have not been able to publish their newspapers. The Seattle Times is directing readers to their online edition, but I wonder how many readers are also without power?

From Seattle Times

NOTE TO READERS: See an electronic version of today's printed paper. Due to a power outage at The Times' Bothell production plant, most copies of the paper will not be printed today. About 13,000 copies that were printed prior to the outage are being delivered to some outlets in downtown Seattle and Bellevue. We apologize for the inconvenience.

From Post-Intelligencer

SEATTLE P-I READERS: Because of power outages and storm damage, P-I subscribers did not receive their newspapers on the usual schedule this morning. We apologize for the inconvenience. We are making our electronic e-edition available to everyone without cost. This edition includes all the contents of your regular newspaper. Click here for the electronic edition.

Reports from Seattle claim one million without power, and power will not be restored for up to five days, so the electronic editions are a mute point.

At the Los Angeles Times Olympic Facility we have our own generators to insure a newspaper is published.
