The majority of the extended outages struck between 3 and 7 a.m. and affected 2,137 utility customers, San Diego Gas & Electric spokeswoman Elizabeth Beaver said. The figure does not include accounts that were without electrical service for a couple minutes or less, she said.
Service had been restored in most of the affected areas by about 10:15 a.m., but crews were still working to bring back power to 395 utility customers in University Heights and 130 in City Heights, Beaver said.
Power was expected to be restored to City Heights around noon, and an hour later in University Heights, Beaver said.
