Thursday, December 26, 2013
A San Diego Gas & Electric contractor cut an underground utility cable, cutting power to more than 5,000 customers Thursday, officials with the utility said.
The roughly 8:20 a.m. outage initially affected 7,787 customers in areas around Balboa Park, North Park and South Park, largely in the vicinity of 30th Street, between University Avenue and Broadway, according to SDG&E spokesman Hanan Eisenman.
Electrical service was restored to about 2,000 of those customers about 10:20 a.m., but it was unclear when it would be restored to the remainder of customers, Eisenman said.
