10:52 AM: PG&E crews this morning restored power in San Francisco after an overnight outage affected nearly 6,700 customers, a utility spokesman said.
The outage was reported at 10:09 p.m. and initially affected 6,687 customers, according to PG&E.
All but 1,362 customers had power restored by 12:45 a.m. Crews continued restoring power to customers until the final two had power back by 7:11 a.m., PG&E spokesman Jason King said.
Those two customers are on generator power until crews complete repairs, King said.
The outage was apparently caused by both a failed overhead connector and a failed underground cable, according to King.
He said the neighborhoods that lost power included the city’s Richmond District and those along the Panhandle.
