More than 2,000 PG&E customers in Bay Area without power

More than 2,000 PG&E customers in the Bay Area are without power Friday afternoon due to three separate outages around the region, a utility spokeswoman said.

The biggest outage is in the area of San Francisco’s Parkmerced, where more than 1,500 customers are without power, according to PG&E.

The cause of the outage had not been determined as of noon, and there was no estimate for when power would be restored, spokeswoman Katie Romans said.

In San Rafael, a tree fell onto power lines at about 8:50 a.m., knocking out power to about 250 customers in the northeast part of the city, Romans said.

Power is expected to be restored to those customers by 10 p.m., she said.

In the East Bay, a car ran into a power pole in Orinda at about 9:45 a.m., knocking out power to about 450 customers, Romans said.

Those customers are expected to have power restored by 6 p.m., she said.
