Just over 2,800 South Bay residents were without power Saturday morning after an issue with an electrical system caused an outage, according to San Diego Gas and Electric.

The outage reportedly began at about 7:31 a.m. and affected areas in Nestor, San Ysidro, Otay Mesa, South Chula Vista, Castle Park and Otay.

About 2,841 customers were left without power, according to SDG&E.

The cause of the outage was attributed to a problem with an overhead electrical system.
