Amid record-breaking heat in all corners of the Bay Area, residents are not only struggling to stay cool, but to keep the lights on.
As of 8 p.m. Sunday, upward of 14,000 PG&E customers throughout the region were without power due to up to 10 large outages, with a scattering of small outages accompanying them.
The number was gradually decreasing from earlier in the day. No official cause of the outages has been released, but there are multiple anecdotal accounts from throughout the region from police and fire agencies reporting blown transformers and other issues attributed to the heat.
Crews have been steadily working on restoring service. For more information and updates, outages can be monitored at the PG&E outage map.
