Hundreds of customers in El Cajon were without power Monday morning after two outages were reported in the area. 

The first outage occurred just after 10 a.m. and affected over 500 customers. The outage was caused by an underground failure, according to an SDG&E spokesperson.

The second outage was reported shortly after when there was an issue on a second circuit. About 1,000 more customers were affected. 

As of about 1 p.m., power was restored to all but 22 customers. It is not known when power will be returned to those customers.

Sprouts grocery store was closed during the afternoon, and stoplights on several blocks were not working near Main Street in El Cajon.
