Rainstorm Causes Power Outages Across County

SDG&E worked into the night Sunday to resolve remaining power issues that initially left more than a thousand San Diego-area customers without power amid heavy rain. 

As of 9:50 p.m. Sunday, SDG&E said they had restored power for nearly all of the 1,000 customers without power across San Diego. 

Fifty five customers in the Fletcher Hills, El Cajon area and 14 on the La Jolla Indian Reservation near Santa Ysabel reported having no power as the tail end of the storm swept through San Diego. 

SDG&E said customers without power in Santa Ysabel lost power because of a vehicle-related accident and not because of the weather. 

Earlier in the evening, the area with the largest outage was parts of Bonita and National City, where a reported 783 customers said they were without power during the rainfall. Crews said they did not know when power would be restored, but power was restored by 9 p.m. 

139 customers in La Presa, Spring Valley, and Rancho San Diego were still without power. The estimated time for restoration was midnight, but SDG&E reported having the power back earlier. 

The seven customers in West Bernardo, Del Dios, and Lake Hodges who lost power also received their power prior to 9 p.m. 

Chula Vista had two customers out of power during the day. 

As of 5:30 p.m., 30 customers in Ocean Beach, Midway,  and Lindbergh Field were without power, but the power was later restored.

Power was also out in Rancho Penasquitos, Rancho Bernardo, San Pasqual, and San Pasqua for 31 customers.
