By late Sunday night, most of the more than 147,000 PG&E customers in the Bay Area without power late Sunday afternoon got their lights back on.

The PG&E outage map still showed scattered outages, none of which affected more than 50 customers.

Earlier in the day, the Peninsula was hit hardest by the outages, with 46,529 customers down at 4:30 p.m., followed by Marin County, with 41,938 down. There were also significant outages in the South Bay (28,948), East Bay (21,685), and San Francisco (8,644).

PG&E activated its Emergency Operations Center on Thursday to prepare for advance planning ahead of the weekend storm, as well as regional and local emergency operation centers across the service area. The utility has more than 3,000 employees working Sunday.

Dozens of trees were down, and several roadways closed due to flooding around the area. Authorities in several cities and counties urged residents to stay home and use caution if they need to venture onto roads.
