Almost 9,000 San Franciscans were affected by a PG&E power outage Wednesday morning.
The outages started at 7:04 a.m. and left 8,897 San Francisco customers without power. All power was restored to those customers by 8:44 a.m., PG&E spokesperson Tamar Sarkissian told The Standard.
Sarkissian said preliminary reports of up to 20,000 customers affected or experiencing service issues were erroneous. PG&E crews were dispatched shortly after the outage occurred and were working to establish an exact cause.
As of 8:30 a.m., the outage mostly affected the city's western neighborhoods south and east of Golden Gate Park, stretching across parts of the Sunset District and into parts of Golden Gate Heights, Forest Hill, the Panhandle and Duboce Triangle.
A separate outage that began at 7:23 a.m. listed up to 2,034 customers without power at its peak, mostly along 10th and 11th avenues in the Inner Sunset and in Golden Gate Heights.
By 10:05 a.m., all residents had their power back, with PG&E saying the cause was related to an equipment issue.
