SAN DIEGO – About 800 San Diego Gas & Electric customers were without power late Tuesday, hours after thousands lost power amid a heavy winter storm that moved through the area.
As of 11 p.m., the largest concentration of outages was in the Oceanside/San Luis Rey/Ocean Hills communities where 553 customers were listed as being without power, an SDG&E outage map shows. The outage, caused by a “need to repair SDG&E equipment,” is expected to last until 4 a.m. Wednesday.
Another chunk of 175 customers was without power in the City Heights/ Chollas Creek/Oak Park areas, according to the outage map. Power is expected to be restored there by 8 a.m. Wednesday.
Earlier in the day, about 10,800 customers lost power as a heavy winter storm slammed the area with high winds as well as bursts of rain and even snow that created challenges for travelers throughout the day.
