Over 17,000 Pacific Gas and Electric customers across the Bay Area were without power as a winter storm moves through the region Thursday afternoon, according to PG&E officials.
The number of PG&E custumers without power as of 3 p.m. dropped to 17,732, officials said, after high winds and continuous rainfall pounded the region since late Tuesday night.
After initially saying classes were canceled for the day Thursday at San Jose City College because of a storm-related power outage, school officials said power has been restored and classes will resume in the afternoon.
San Francisco State University also reopened its main campus and downtown campus Thursday morning after closing them earlier in the morning because of power outages caused by the storm.
The North Bay has been hit the hardest, as 5,594 customers don't have power. In the Peninsula, around 5,212 customers are currently without power.
Elsewhere in the region, San Francisco has 2,960 customers without power, the East Bay 548 and the South Bay 3,418.
