RICHMOND -- More than 1,000 PG&E customers were without power Monday night in Richmond, but power was restored to all customers early this morning, according to PG&E.
A wire that caused the outage was possibly brought down by a kite, a PG&E spokesman said.
The wire was reported down in the area of Wall Avenue and South 50th Street at 8:25 p.m., PG&E spokesman J.D. Guidi said.
Originally, 2,230 customers were without power, but by around 9:30 p.m. PG&E crews had the number down to 1,100.
Initial reports to PG&E said that a kite had been flown into the power lines, knocking a wire down. However, Guidi said those reports have not yet been confirmed.
