Crews at Alameda Municipal Power have restored electric service to about 3,200 customers who went dark at 8:10 this morning. Alameda Municipal Power spokesman Bill Garvine said the utility is looking into the cause of the outage.
Garvine said the utility lost service in a circuit and that crews were trying to figure out where and why. He said crews were “doing some switching” to restore power while the problem circuit is sought.
Customers between Atlantic Avenue and Central and south of Buena Vista Avenue near Sherman Street, between Paru and Ninth lost power at 8:10 a.m., Garvine said. He said power along Atlantic was restored at 9:05 a.m., while power in the other areas came back shortly after 9:30 a.m.
The outage comes on the heels of a series of outages on October 24 that left the entire Island without power for a little more than an hour. Those outages were caused when a Pacific Gas & Electric high voltage line “dropped” service to Alameda.
