Power restored to SDG&E customers in Lakeside

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Power to more than 2,000 customers that went out in a large swath of rural East County shortly after 1 p.m. Sunday had been restored to nearly half of those affected by about 2:30 p.m., SDG&E said.

Samya France of SDG&E media relations said there were three separate power outages, one in Lakeside near a small brush fire that started about noon and threatened structures and vehicles alongside Interstate 8 near Los Coches Road.

"That outage in Lakeview/Glenview in Lakeside, that left 891 customers without power was shut off for safety due to the brush fire," France said.

France said all but eight of those 891 customers had power restored by about 2:30 p.m.

About 3 p.m., France said SDG&E crews were at the scene of the other two power outages which had cut electricity to residences in Alpine, Jamul and Harbison Canyon.

"Crews have no precise information as to why the electricity went out there," France said. "Power is still out."

France said it was hoped power would be back for all remaining affected residences by 3:30 p.m. or shortly thereafter

    If you've ever been stuck sitting in traffic, you've probably seen motorcyclists cutting through lanes and whizzing by. It's a move called lane-splitting, and while it's potentially dangerous, it's perfectly legal.
