San Diego Gas and Electric crews restored power to several hundred customers in rural communities left in the dark over Thanksgiving.
About 300 customers in Boulevard, Jacumba and Live Oak Springs saw service running just before 4 p.m. after a power outage around 8:45 a.m., according to the utility.
Another outage affecting more than 400 customers in Julian, Santa Ysabel and Morettis Junction began around noon. Most of them regained power a few hours later, but around 38 are expected to return to service by 7 p.m., according to SDG&E’s outage map.
The teams determined that the cause of the failure was a necessary repair of their equipment.
Elsewhere, the utility said about 60 customers in Campo, Dulzura and Potrero were left without power due to a passing foreign object. Restoration estimated 18h ago
There were also about 320 customers in east Ramona without power.
SDG&E spokesman Alex Welling said high winds could have caused some of the outages, although crews have been busy over the holidays to restore service and determine the causes.
