The outage struck at 6:40 p.m. Tuesday and was affecting utility customers in Oceanside, San Luis Rey and Ocean Hills, according to San Diego Gas & Electric. Utility officials attributed the outage to a "combination of factors" that caused some type of problem in the electrical system.

As of about 8:30 a.m., service had been restored to 470 customers.

SDG&E estimated crews would have electrical service fully restored by 2:30 p.m.
