BERKELEY -- About 111 customers are expected to have their power restored about 7:45 a.m. after an outage left thousands of people without electricity Monday night.
The outage struck at 9:38 p.m., according to PG&E spokeswoman Jana Morris. It was caused by a cable that failed at a substation in Berkeley.
About 12,000 customers in Berkeley lost power in the initial Berkeley outage, Morris said. PG&E reported at one point Monday night that 19,000 customers were affected, but revised that number around 11:20 p.m.
Smaller outages were also reported Monday night in Fremont, Hayward, Concord, Martinez, Oakland, Oakley and Pinole. Information about the status of those outages was not immediately available Tuesday morning.
