Large power outage in southeastern San Diego

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - An equipment problem at a Paradise Valley-area power substation left thousands of homes and businesses without electrical service throughout much of southeastern San Diego and surrounding communities Wednesday afternoon.

The outage began shortly before 2:30 p.m., initially affecting about 12,000 addresses from Rancho San Diego to Bay Terraces to National City, according to San Diego Gas & Electric.

Within about a half-hour, crews had restored service to roughly 8,200 of those customers, SDPD spokeswoman Allison Zaragoza said.

The remainder were back online by early evening, the utility company reported.

    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.
