Thousands of Northshore residents out of power Wednesday

NORTHSHORE – A power outage Wednesday afternoon left homes and businesses along the Northshore dark for more than four hours.

The blackout began shortly before 4 p.m., said JD Guidi, a spokesman for Pacific Gas and Electric Co.

Approximately 5,030 customers along Clear Lake's eastern side were affected, Guidi explained.

Power was fully restored to all customers by 8:14 p.m., he added.

Guidi said the outage was caused by equipment failure.
