The power outage began Sunday night shortly after 7 p.m., initially leaving 307 customers without power, PG&E spokesman J. D. Guidi said.

As of this morning, that number was down to 232. PG&E crews are still investigating the cause but expect to have power restored by 8:30 or 9 a.m.

The affected area is north of Civic Center Plaza, along Larkin and Hyde streets.

Some traffic lights are out on Eddy, Ellis and O’Farrell streets, Guidi said.
