pg&e_blackout(2).jpgAn outage caused by a downed power line left about 5,100 PG&E customers without electricity in San Francisco’s Noe Valley and nearby neighborhoods this morning.

The outage began at about 9:30 a.m. when a power line came down in the area of 28th and Diamond streets, PG&E spokesman Joe Molica said.

He said PG&E is still investigating what knocked the line down, but that crews are working to make repairs.

Power was restored to the majority of those affected within 45 minutes, and shortly before 1 p.m. only 75 customers remained without power, Molica said.

The 24th Street/Mission BART station lost power for about 10 minutes, BART spokesman Jim Allison said.

The outage “primarily affected the equipment on the tracks,” and trains had to be operated in manual mode, rather than automatically, he said. The incident caused delays of about 10 minutes, Allison said.

Molica said PG&E hopes to have final repairs made by 4:30 p.m.

No injuries were reported in connection with the downed line.
