Around the San Francisco Bay Area, thousands of customers remained without power Tuesday, more than a day after a powerful storm damaged trees and power lines, according to PG&E's website.

As of 2 p.m. Tuesday, the Bay Area had 54,453 customers in the dark, with 762 customers without power in San Francisco. Those numbers were down from 8 a.m., when 85,212 customers around the region and 2,224 customers were without power in the city. Both San Francisco numbers had fallen from Monday's peak of 4,909 customers.

Outside the city, the North Bay and South Bay had 25,962 and 15,095 customers each without power, while the Peninsula had 12,724, less than a quarter of Monday's 56,604 customers without power. The East Bay saw the most regional progress toward restoration, dropping from Monday's 28,717 to 2,081 on Tuesday morning to only 180 on Tuesday afternoon.
