Storm Turns Out the Lights on Thousands of PG&E Customers

Some areas get their power restored by Sunday evening; PG&E crews will work through the night

A winter storm packing heavy rains and high winds on Sunday knocked out power for several thousands of people across the Bay Area, but PG&E had much of the outages repaired by Sunday evening.

Roughly 42,000 customers throughout the Bay Area were in the dark as of 11 a.m. Sunday, according to PG&E's power outage map. By 7 p.m., the total was just short of 17,000.

Approximately 5,630 customers along the Peninsula, 5,325 in the North Bay, 2,510 in San Francisco, 1,810 in the South Bay and 1,570 in the East Bay were among those still without power as of 7 p.m. Sunday.

Crews will remain out in full force throughout the night, working on restoring power, PG&E said.
