PG&E works to restore power after heat-related outages

BAY AREA (KTVU & Wires) - Pacific Gas and Electric officials are continuing to try and restore service Tuesday morning to customers in the Bay Area without power, according to a PG&E spokesman.

As of 5:20 a.m., about 74 customers in Gilroy and 26 customers in San Jose are experiencing outages, PG&E spokesman J.D. Guidi said.

Additionally, 225 customers in parts of the East Bay, including Danville, Walnut Creek and Brentwood, are without power, Guidi said.

The outages began at about 5:30 p.m. on Monday and are due to a heat-related equipment failure.

The heat-related outages had initially affected about 9,500 customers in the Bay Area.

Crews are working to repair the equipment and PG&E officials are hoping to have power fully restored to customers in all areas between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m., according to Guidi.
