An outage left thousands of residents in La Jolla and Pacific Beach without power Saturday afternoon, San Diego Gas & Electric confirmed.

The power outage struck around 4:19 p.m., initially impacting approximately 3,600 customers in La Jolla, La Jolla Shores, Soledad Mountain, Mission Bay and Pacific Beach, according to SDG&E.

By 5:05 p.m., approximately 370 customers remained without power in the Mission Bay and Pacific Beach areas. By 5:30 p.m., that number wittled down to approximately 200.

The cause of the power outage is under investigation. SDG&E says a "number of combined factors" caused some sort of problem in the electric system.

As of right now, officials estimate that power will be fully restored to the impacted communities by 7 p.m.
