10:50 AM: PG&E crews this morning were working to restore power to thousands of Bay Area customers who lost electricity because of strong winds overnight, a utility spokesman said.
Roughly 5,970 customers from the North Bay to San Jose remained without power as of 9:30 a.m., PG&E spokesman Jason King said. As many as 20,000 lost power at some point overnight, he said.
The hardest-hit communities were on the Peninsula, where crews were working to restore power to roughly 3,900 homes and businesses, King said.
About 220 customers remained without power this morning in San Francisco, where as many as 4,600 lost service overnight, he said.
In the North Bay, 930 customers were still in the dark, and power was out for around 250 customers in the East Bay, according to PG&E.
In the South Bay, about 590 customers remained without power this morning, King said.
As windy conditions continued to die down, the number of Bay Area outages was dropping dramatically, King said.
4:20 AM: High winds and poor weather are affecting thousands of PG&E customers throughout the Bay Area this morning, according to PG&E.
Those most affected are in San Francisco, San Bruno and Redwood City, according to PG&E.
Roughly 4,600 customers in San Francisco are without power; another nearly 4,300 are in the dark in Redwood City; and about 4,100 in San Bruno are powerless.
