Two separate outages left thousands of San Diego Gas and Electric customers without power Tuesday morning in the Point Loma, Ocean Beach, Pacific Beach, La Jolla and Bird Rock areas.
The first outage was reported about 5:55 a.m., affecting roughly 3,600 customers in the Ocean Beach and Point Loma areas, SDG&E spokeswoman Helen Gao said. By 7:50 a.m., power had been restored to all but 107 customers from the outage and the rest were expected to regain power by 2 p.m., she said.
SDG&E crews investigated the outage and determined it was caused by equipment failure, she said.
A second outage was reported around 6:20 a.m., affecting 4,698 customers in the Mission Bay, Pacific Beach, La Jolla and Bird Rock areas, according to the utility’s website. By 8:50 a.m., power had been restored to all but 118 customers and the remaining customers were expected to have power back by 11 a.m., according to SDG&E.
Crews determined the second outage was caused by downed power lines, Gao said.
