Thousands of people were left without power Tuesday during an outage across San Diego beach communities including Point Loma, Ocean Beach, Sunset Cliffs, and Pacific Beach.
San Diego Gas & Electric reported outages impacting more than a dozen areas at around 11:15 a.m., also including Lindbergh Field, Mission Bay, and the Midway District. Combined and at their peaks, the outages impacted more than 11,800 customers, SDG&E’s maps showed.
The utility noted it was assessing the outages to determine the cause.
The San Diego International Airport posted a message on Twitter saying the outage impacted the airport for only a few minutes.
As of 12:30 p.m., SDG&E was working to restore the power; estimated restoration to impacted communities was 3 p.m.
By 12:40 p.m., SDG&E's outage map no longer displayed the power outages.
