PG&E working to restore power to 20,000 in Bay Area

As the latest in a series of storms to hit the Bay Area continued to move south this morning, PG&E was working to restore electricity to more than 20,000 customers who remained without power.

As of 11 a.m., a broken power pole that left around 8,500 San Francisco residents in the dark this morning had been repaired, PG&E spokesman Joe Molica said. About 1,930 residents throughout the city remained without power, he said.

Around 4,730 Peninsula residents were without power, and 1,310 customers were impacted in the South Bay, according to PG&E.

In the East Bay, about 7,620 customers were in the dark, and PG&E crews were working to restore service to 5,060 customers in the North Bay, Molica said

Since Thursday, PG&E estimated that 276,780 customers around the Bay Area lost power at some point, Molica said.

About 93 percent of those outages have been resolved.
