The outage began around 6:30 a.m. in an area that included Townsend Street between First and Sixth streets, and Fourth Street between Townsend and Brannan streets, utility spokesman J.D. Guidi said.

As of 7:45 a.m., power had been restored to all but 380 customers, he said.

Crews were still working to determine the cause of the outage, and there was no estimate yet for when power would be fully restored.
