Over 10,000 customers were without power overnight in San Francisco due to an underground equipment failure.

More than 10,000 PG&E customers lost power this morning in San Francisco's Tenderloin and Nob Hill neighborhoods.

PG&E crews have restored power to customers impacted by this particular outage, PG&E officials said.

The outage was caused by underground field equipment failure, officials said.

There were approximately 10,800 customers left without power.

PG&E is still investigating the cause of the failure and whether the incident was related to overnight inclement weather.
