As of 3:19 a.m. hundreds of San Francisco customers in areas throughout the city had no power after the outage started at 3:12 a.m., spokesman JD Guidi said.

There was no estimate when power would return. Crews are in the downed areas working to bring back power, Guidi said.

The outage is likely related to weather but the official cause is being investigated, Guidi said.

As of 4:30 a.m. there were 1,700 customers throughout the Bay Area without power, according to Guidi.
