According to PG&E spokesperson Karly Hernandez, customers lost power about 8 p.m., when a tree fell on a line. The estimated time for the majority of customers to be restored with power is by 10:15 p.m.

“Our crews are on the scene assessing the situation,” Hernandez said. “A crew is in route to make the necessary repairs.”
