Nearly 3,000 Pacific Gas and Electric customers in San Francisco and on the Peninsula are without power Tuesday morning due to storm-related outages.
In San Francisco, 1,540 customers in the Hunter’s Point Shipyard area remain in the dark after a 7:30 a.m. outage that originally affected 2,600, PG&E spokesman Joe Molica said.
In the Bay Meadows area of San Mateo, 760 customers are without power, while 114 are experiencing an outage in the neighborhood between Poplar Street and Mariner Island Boulevard. In Pescadero, 172 are in the dark. In Pacifica, 20 customers are affected, and 39 are without power in Burlingame and Hillsborough, Molica said.
“It’s an all-hands-on-deck-situation,” Molica said. “Our meteorology department is working with our emergency department to monitor the storm’s progress. Winds are going to hit 65 miles per hour and higher. We do routine maintenance to make sure trees don’t fall into power lines, but when winds get that high, they bring down healthy trees.”
Molica said crews are working hard, but there is no estimate on when power will be restored. Customers can call 1-800-PGE-5002 to report an outage.
