Power out for residents in Balboa Park, North Park areas

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A San Diego Gas & Electric contractor cut an underground utility cable, cutting power to more than 5,000 customers Thursday morning, 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.
