Power expected to be restored after morning outage in SF

Nearly fifty PG&E customers still without power from an early morning outage Monday in the western region of San Francisco should have their electricity restored by 9 a.m., a PG&E spokeswoman said.

A single widespread outage knocked out power to 3,589 San Francisco customers at 3 a.m., PG&E spokeswoman Jana Morris said. The number of impacted customers was down to 1,059 by 4:15 a.m. and had dropped to just 49 customers a half hour later, she said.

The estimated time for restoration of power to those people, the majority of whom live on 43rd Avenue near Ocean Beach, is 9 a.m., Morris said. Three or four of the affected customers live on Point Lobos Avenue in The City’s Outer Richmond district, she said.

There was no indication of a possible cause for the outage as of 6:30 a.m., Morris said.
